As many of you will have anticipated, we have decided to postpone the AGM, which was due to be held on 16th June, as well as the John Shannon Memorial Lecture. We hope to have the AGM and lecture in October, whether online or in person.
As many of you will have had the date in your diaries, we have decided to take the opportunity to hosting an online event on 16th June at 7pm. The event, Conservation and Craft Myths: A Window into the YCCC World, will showcase the work of four members, who will each provide a fifteen-minute presentation on the myths they encounter in their field. This will be followed by a twenty-minute Q&A session, where the audience can quiz the panel. Speakers will include Bethan Griffiths (The Ironwork Studio), Susie Clark (Paper and Photographic Conservator and Consultant), Matthias Garn (Matthias Garn Master Mason and Partner) and Keith Barley (Barley Studio).
The free event will be held via Zoom, and instructions for registering will be circulated in the next few days. More information on the speakers and their subjects will soon be added to our website.
