Archival Documents for Conservators
15-19 October 2012
Course leader:  Chris Woods

    This course aims to help conservators to understand why archival
    documents look like they do, what aspects of them must be
    preserved, and how to set about protecting them and their
    provenance.  It presents an opportunity to identify, record and
    undertake protective measures for documents and for conservators
    especially a chance to develop new skills in identifying formats
    and materials and undertaking treatments for parchment, early
    papers and wax and shellac seals.

    Fully-inclusive residential course fee:  From UKP677

Conservation of Historic Floors
22-25 October 2012
Course leader:  Francesca Scoones Principal tutor:  Jane Fawcett

    Very little information exists about how to tackle the repairs
    and the loss of historical evidence.  The extent of the loss of
    such evidence, particularly in ecclesiastical buildings, is
    little understood and the methods of recording it are often
    inadequate.  In many cases it is now too late, and the
    destruction has been total. On this course, leading authorities
    will attempt to address some of these problems, to weigh the
    demands of tourism against those of conservation and to provide
    examples of what has been done and how, where and when.

    Fully-inclusive residential course fee:  From UKP516
