Lisa Shekede and Stephen Rickerby are wall painting conservators with a portfolio of UK and international work.

The ancient city of Petra in Jordan is famous for its monuments and buildings cut out of sandstone rock. These were once richly painted, but centuries of weathering have revealed the underlying “rose-red” stone for which the site is best known today. Only one monument at the site now preserves figurative wall painting, which dates to the1stcentury AD. This presentation tells the story of its remarkable rediscovery, reinterpretation and preservation.

Tickets for this event are £5 per person and will be available shortly on Eventbrite.
