Uppsala Cathedral’s Stained Glass Studio are looking for a new stained glass conservator to join the studio for a six month contract. Uppsala Cathedral’s Stained Glass Studio opened in 2013 as the first stained glass conservation studio in Sweden. There was a demand for stained glass conservators due to the many windows at the cathedral needing care. The studio now undertakes conservation projects all over Sweden, as well as Uppsala Cathedral. Today the studio has 2 full time and 1 part time conservators and is part of Uppsala parish. The studio is located close to Uppsala Cathedral in the heart of Uppsala. The work will mainly be done in the studio, but also includes site work when you spend days or weeks away.
