Identification of materials
12-15 March 2012

Course leader:  Bob Child

    This course will look at a wide range of materials used in our
    historic and artistic past and see how they can be accurately
    identified using simple, non-costly means.  The format of the
    course will be through lectures, demonstrations and of course
    hands-on practical sessions.

    The aim of the course is to allow participants to see and handle
    a wide variety of objects made from different materials.  They
    will be encouraged to compare and contrast 'the real thing' from
    fakes, copies and imitations.  Participants are encouraged to
    bring their own objects for discussion.

    Non-residential course fee:  UKP381
    Fully-inclusive residential course fee:  From UKP516

Integrated pest management
28-31 May 2012

Course leader:  David Pinniger

    This workshop will give guidance on how to deal with insect pest
    problems likely to be encountered in museums, collections,
    archives and historic houses.  It will focus upon insects and
    the damage they cause, together with new information on the
    detection, monitoring and trapping of pests. The emphasis is on
    pest-prevention as the key to successful IPM, but will also
    evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of physical and
    chemical control measures.
