You’re invited to join CSI East Bay-Oakland Chapter for an online presentation: “Resurrecting the Past: preservation of a 118-year-old stained glass inverted dome in Downtown Oakland” with Ariana Makau of Nzilani Glass Conservation.
In early 2019, Nzilani Glass Conservation
was contacted by Resurrection Church at 17th and Franklin in Oakland. Their 118-year-old, inverted stained-glass dome was in critical condition. Time and previous improper repairs had made the ten-foot diameter structure unsafe, requiring immediate conservation to save it.
We invite you to join us for a presentation by Ariana Makau, founder of Nzilani, to learn how she and her team saved this precious Oakland resource and won a 2020 California Preservation Design Award. We will also learn about Nzilani as a business and some principles of stained glass conservation.
