Event description

Description

Building on the success of last year's workshop at Leeds Minster, members of York Archaeological Trust’s Conservation and Interpretation teams will be on hand to explore techniques for recording and conserving church furniture and monuments, and for creating accessible materials to interpret them.

This workshop will introduce some of the conservation issues associated with church heritage through a series of case studies, including work completed by YAT’s Conservation department, and a tour of Leeds Minster’s own ‘lost and found’ treasures. Lisa McIntyre of the Leeds Diocesan Advisory Committee for the Care of Churches will speak on DAC support and advice for managing some of these issues, and the session will conclude with a look at a current YAT / University of Huddersfield project to explore and interpret an intangible aspect of church history for general audiences: the story of Yorkshire’s medieval communities of regular canons.

The Church Explorers Network connects people working in churches to help them promote their building through a programme of networking events, training and skill-sharing. Together we explore the history and archaeology of our church buildings and discover how to make the most of them as a heritage asset.
