Aspects of Conservation of Glass

Kenneth Watt, West Dean College 

Kenneth Watt is programme leader and tutor at West Dean College on the Conservation of Ceramics and Related Materials programme. A Ceramics Graduate, he has worked at Glasgow Museums before teaching at West Dean.   The Graduate and the Post Graduate Programmes at West Dean College have developed as unique within their field. Through studying primary source objects of archaeological and historical importance students learn how to develop appropriate treatments and devise solutions to conservation problems.  This is led by an appropriate level of study in contextual and conservation theory. Since 2004 students have the opportunity to upgrade their Postgraduate studies to MA level (MA degree in Conservation Studies).  The Programmes are validated with the University of Sussex.
