Craft: A case study - the Mackintosh Building Restoration Project

Event info

Part of Doors Open Day. 

Places limited. Booking essential, via Eventbrite. 

A series of talks from the craft men & women responsible for the painstaking work being undertaken to restore the world famous Mackintosh Building at The Glasgow School of Art.

The restoration project draws on a number of highly skilled building and decorative crafts people. These talks are an opportunity to hear from the craft operatives themselves about the challenges faced to conserve, restore and rebuild the Mackintosh Building.

The afternoon will be a fascinating tour through many of the disciplines essential to the project with presentations rich in anecdote drawn from experience on the job. Mackintosh’s relationship with practicing craftsmen underpinned the genius of his design and each talk will reveal the skills and expertise that were originally required to deliver the art school Mackintosh envisaged.
