This year, with the help of the Convent’s network of supporters, the ACF has engaged heritage conservator Penny Byrne to repair the crumbling 110+ year-old tessellated tiles lining our public walkways. We talk to Penny about what’s involved in such a delicate project, the impact of a National Heritage listing, and her upcoming tenancy at the Convent.
“ The Abbotsford Convent is a contemporary village, I love being here with my family, meeting and making friends with the community. ”
