Practice and Theory:  Managing Change in Historic Buildings
14-16 January 2013

    Course leader: Helen Hughes, Historic interiors Research and

    This course places the technical issues of building conservation
    within the broader conservation context to consider why we
    conserve buildings.  The objective of the course is to provide
    participants with a better understanding of broader conservation
    processes and expand awareness and understanding of current
    principles and practices in the conservation of the built
    heritage. It aims to improve communication between the building
    conservator and other heritage sector professionals in decision
    making processes. The course will consider the history of
    conservation, charters, values, statements of significance,
    current heritage protection legislation and the production and
    use of Conservation Plans. These topics will be examined with
    reference to a series of case studies reflecting the seven
    compulsory Professional Development Diploma courses, linking
    practice to planning and management concerns.

    The course will be delivered by a range of practical
    conservators, conservation architects and conservation policy

    Fully-inclusive residential course fee:  From UKP438

    This course covers the conservation of structural metalwork,
    architectural features and statuary, and includes both ferrous

    on a wide range of repair techniques.  It covers the methods of
    manufacture and shaping of ferrous metals, the history of their
    use, deterioration, surveys, practical cleaning methods, surface
    preparation and coatings, and specifying metalwork repairs.  It
    includes corrosion science, the latest developments in cathodic
    protection as a remedial solution to rusting cramps, and the
    science of traditional electrotype forming as used for statuary.

    There will be a 'hands-on' opportunity in the Forge when
    students will be able to try out traditional and modern
    techniques relevant to architectural conservation such as
    forging at the hearth, arc and gas welding, flame cutting and
    needle gunning.
