SAVANNAH — Savannah Technical College’s Historic Preservation Department will host stained-glass expert H. Thomas Küpper through Sept. 28 to kick off its Visiting Artisan series for the 2012-13 academic year.
Küpper, the glazing-department team leader at Lincoln Cathedral in the United Kingdom, will be at the college’s Savannah campus at 5717 White Bluff Road. He will work with historic-preservation students on advanced conservation techniques for stained glass, including cleaning, copper foil repairs and chemical edge bonding. Also, he will cover proper documentation techniques for stained glass conservation. Küpper and the STC students will work on an 1884 window donated by John Galik of Sanctuary Place Inn.
The window will be used for hands-on training during a two-day workshop, “What’s Wrong with My Windows?,” Oct. 3-4 at Savannah Tech. Spots are still available for this workshop, which qualifies for AIA credits. For more information or to register, go to aptconference.org.
