FREE TALK : Architectural Stone Carving, Conservation and Ethics : Tuesday 8th June, 7pm

Registration is now open for our free talk on the subject of Architectural Stone Carving within the Heritage Sector.

This will be the second in our series of heritage and conservation talks and is being held via Microsoft Teams on Tuesday, 8 June, at 7pm, with a live recording of the talk being made available afterwards via the project’s YouTube channel.  The talk will last around 1 hour including time for questions at the end.

About the talk:

The talk will be led by Alex Wenham, a prizewinning stone carver based in Oxford, specialising in the repair and replacement of historic carved detail for conservation projects. He has worked on stone buildings of every century from the 11th to the 21st, and has been fortunate to provide carved detail for many prestigious buildings in the UK and France, including the Houses of Parliament, St Paul’s Cathedral, Château de Versailles, Chartres Cathedral, the Louvre among many others.

During the session, Alex will discuss his experience with architectural stone carving within the conservation sector, looking at some case studies of projects he has worked on. He will also look at some more general problems and grey areas in conservation ethics and the treatment of damage to historic carvings, and host a discussion of some of these issues, as well as answering any other questions.
