Join us for an evening of talks on the survey and preservation of historic plaster ceilings.
We will start with a presentation by Richard Ireland on the stylistic development of plaster ceilings together with an overview of their investigation, defects and repair. This will be followed by Kevin Clark from the heritage team at Conisbee Consulting Engineers who will talk about some of their recent work accessing, inspecting and appraising the structure that supports such ceilings, often in highly challenging conditions.
Richard Ireland is the UK’s leading conservator of historic plaster and paint. He operates principally as an independent consultant and practitioner but also advises for public bodies. Richard’s projects typically involve a combination of archaeological investigation, scientific analysis, and contextual historic research. Conisbee is an award winning civil and structural engineering design practice with offices in London, Norwich and Cambridge with a specialism in heritage engineering and CARE registered engineers. Together, these two talks will provide us with an understanding of the methodologies applied to care for these important architectural features.
The talks will be followed by a Q&A and the opportunity to network around a glass of wine afterwards.
