During her inaugural address, SLL President Liz Peck outlined the importance of cross industry collaboration and this message was at the forefront when deciding on the focus for the 2015 – 16 Masterclass series, Inside Out: Light & Architecture. The Masterclasses looked at lighting interior and exterior architecture and the upcoming Lighting Guides, LG6: Lighting the Outdoor Environment and LG7: Office Lighting.

The Society welcomed the Masters, from our four Sponsors in Partnership; Mike Simpson from Philips, Kevin Stubbs from Thorn, Helen Loomes from Trilux and, new to the 2015-16 series, Roger Sexton from Xicato. Guest speakers for the 2015-16 Masterclasses included, Mark Sutton Vane of Sutton Vane Associates, Andrew Bissell of Cundall, Light 4, Kevan Shaw of KSLD and Adam Glatherine of G3 Lighting.

The Society of Light and Lighting Masterclasses were introduced in 2004 in response to demand for provision of lighting events regionally in the UK. Each series comprises of seven or eight one-day seminars, plus a shortened schedule which is held at the LuxLive exhibition every November. 

Each Masterclass venue around the UK and Ireland is of high quality and interest. The overall theme and paper topics for each Masterclass series is agreed at the start of the year between the Society and the Sponsors. Each sponsor provides a ‘Master' to give their peer reviewed presentation and the Society provide a guest speaker at each event.
