Conservation training

Working and training in Chapel Studio under the tutelage of Alfred Fisher I got to work on stained glass from some of the finest historic buildings in the United Kingdom.

Rivenhall, Essex  The breastfeeding Madonna. The stained glass in this church is arguable the oldest in Britain, even older than the famous glass 12th century from Canterbury Cathedral.  Our team won a conservation award for the work we conducted on this scheme of windows

This is a post conservation close up of a panel that came from Sutton Place in Surry built c.1525 where Henry VIII courted Anne Boleyn. 

The lines particularly visible in the bottom right quadrant of the shield are miniature copper foils which during the conservation process replaced heavy repair leads.
