CPD: Conserving Interwar Shopfronts – Materials and Methods

Wednesday 5th June 2019 | 12.30-1.30pm | 54 Bell Street, Glasgow

The shopfronts and signs of the 1920s and 30s are characterised by materials such as Vitrolite, bronze, faience, and terracotta, which present their own considerations and challenges as they age. Dr. Lindsay Lennie, one of Scotland’s foremost authorities on historic shopfronts, gives a specialised talk on the materials and methods of this brief but significant time period, and discusses conservation solutions to conserving interwar shopfronts.

All GCHT CPD sessions are recognised by the IHBC, and attendees can obtain a CPD certificate upon completion.

A light lunch will be provided.


All sessions are recognised by the Institute of Historic Building Conservation (IHBC) as being capable of contributing to the obligatory CPD requirements of Full Members (see www.ihbc.org.uk)
