Over the past ten years, the face of stained-glass conservation has been changed through training opportunities at all levels. Practice-based internships funded through the Institute of Conservation (ICON), NADFAS, the Worshipful Company of Glaziers, the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF), and the University of York’s own MA course have supported a new generation of stained-glass conservators. These young practitioners are now making their mark in studios throughout Europe. Our speakers, all of whom have experience of one or more of these routes into a career in conservation, will speak about their own career and the projects with which they are now involved.
