Conservation Meets its Maker
August 31-September 10, 2003

    Opportunities are available to young conservators and art
    historians from Europe and the United States to join an advanced
    study course at West Dean College and the Conservation Centre
    Liverpool. The purpose of this interdisciplinary workshop is to
    offer an invaluable opportunity to investigate and practise the
    skills and techniques used by the makers of objects.

    The workshop will take a broad perspective from observation of
    artifacts, materials and making, through to current conservation
    practice and emergent conservation techniques. Participants will
    explore the making of objects as a learning process towards
    interpretation and conservation of the original. The format
    includes demonstrations, practical sessions, lectures, visits
    and case studies. Experienced tutors will encourage mutual
    exchange of ideas and experiences within the group. There will
    be an emphasis on shared experience and participants will be
    given the opportunity to discuss and present their personal
    research interests.

    Participants will be selected on the basis of a statement of
    interest, brief C.V. and reference from a personal tutor

    Bursaries are available to fully cover the cost of accommodation,
    full board and tuition fees but participants are responsible for
    their own travel costs.
