Forthcoming ICON Gilding and Decorative Surfaces Group Events

Moulding and Casting Day

    An all day event on Tuesday 10 June, 2008, at Buckinghamshire
    New University, High Wycombe.  Following on from the last very
    successful Day with Dr Campbell Norman-Smith, the aim of this
    practical seminar is to introduce the conservator to the varied
    uses of Silastic T4 and other cold cure rubbers.  These rubbers
    produce versatile moulds in exquisite detail and have the added
    benefit of being very durable.  Participants will have the
    opportunity to put into practice what has been demonstrated and
    will receive comprehensive documentation on the techniques.

    Please note that this is a new stand-alone Day and the seminar
    content differs from the previous Mould Making Day, which
    focused on hot-melt rubbers.

    Icon Members UKP70, non-Members UKP95.00 and students UKP50.00
    (prices include all materials); 15 places available.

    To pay for and secure a place please contact Dr Campbell
    Norman-Smith +44 1494 522141 ext 3410.

Boule and Marquetry Day

    An all day event on Wednesday 11 June, 2008, at Buckinghamshire
    New University, High Wycombe.  Participants will be introduced
    to the origin and principles of Boule marquetry.  Boule
    marquetry is a technique where sheets of turtleshell and brass
    are glued together and then cut to the design required using a
    fretsaw.  The techniques and examples will be demonstrated by
    Paul Tear MBE (formerly of The Wallace Collection).  The day
    will be very much hands-on and participants will have the
    opportunity to practice the techniques demonstrated and will
    leave with detailed seminar notes.

    Icon Members UKP70, non-Members UKP95.00 and students UKP50.00
    (prices include all materials); 12 places available.

    To pay for and secure a place please contact Dr Campbell
