Sash Windows

Friday 9 March 2018

9.30am – 5pm

The course

This day will comprise lectures on the joinery involved in making and repairing sash windows, and the examination of original examples from the Brooking Collection.

The tutors

Charles Brooking is an architectural historian and consultant on building and joinery.  Over a lifetime of collecting he has built up the Brooking Collection of Architectural Detail; the only major national Collection of its kind in the UK. The Collection physically charts the evolution of British building details over the last 500 years. Charles has rescued architectural features since 1966, retrieved from all kinds of buildings, from national Landmark buildings to the humble terrace house, and from country estates to vernacular cottages.  The Collection has been used as a teaching resource by conservation professionals, schools, architectural students, designers, crafts apprentices and private individuals for the last 23 years.

Anna Bishop works with Charles Brooking and the charity to help establish the collection as a national educational resource.
