We intend to hold the conference at Bath Guildhall, although we have an online Covid-19 contingency plan. A survey to assess the enthusiasm for live and online events will be circulated in May.
Bath is a beautiful city with excellent local stained glass, as well as many museum highlights, such as the East Asian Art Museum, Victoria Art Gallery, Holburne Museum, Fashion Museum, Assembly Rooms and Roman Baths. We aim to organise tours, visits and talks in some of these locations.
The Ceramics and Glass Group is pleased to announce that our guest speaker for the 2021 joint CGG-SGG conference will be Julie Monique, a master’s student on the Conservation-restauration des biens culturels course at the University of Paris in conjunction with the Laboratoire de Recherche des Monuments Historiques (LRMH). Her presentation will focus on how past interventions impact the condition of stained glass windows including events such as the fire at Notre-Dame Cathedral in April 15th 2019.
