Jeffrey Havelin, PE
The purpose of this (Two-Hour) course is to provide the engineer or architect with a fundamental understanding and technical knowledge associated with the preservation and repair of Historic Stained and Leaded Glass.
This course provides a short history of stained and leaded glass in America. It also surveys basic preservation and documentation issues facing owners of buildings with leaded glass. It addresses common causes of deterioration and presents repair, restoration, and protection options. While stained glass windows can last for centuries, as the great cathedrals of Europe attest, they can be instantly destroyed by vandals or by careless workmen. Extreme care must therefore be exercised, even in the most minor work. For this reason, virtually all repair or restoration work undertaken on stained and leaded glass must be done by professionals, whether the feature is a magnificent stained glass window or a clear, leaded glass storefront transom.
This course is based entirely on the web version of the National Park Service Preservation Brief 33 which is entitled “The Preservation and Repair of Historic Stained and Leaded Glass” as published by the National Park Service- U.S. Department of the Interior.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
