Building Conservation Masterclass: Conservation and Repair of Architectural Metalwork.
West Dean College, near Chichester. 24 - 27 February 2004.
This course is part of a series of masterclasses in building conservation, a collaboration in specialist training between English Heritage, West Dean College and The Weald and Downland Open Air Museum. Aimed at those who need to develop practical skills and those who need to understand, specify and supervise these skills: craftsmen, conservators and specialist contractors, it deals with structural metalwork, as well as purely decorative features and statuary. The masterclass is a unique mix of teaching sessions interspersed with demonstrations, with opportunities for practical experience under the guidance of experienced professionals. The course leader is Bill Martin, Senior Conservator, Building Conservation and Research, at English Heritage and working with him are two course tutors from leading conservation firms. Geoffrey Wallis, Director of Dorothea Restorations Ltd, will focus on cast and wrought iron, and Robert Turner, a partner in Eura Conservation, will cover non-ferrous metals.
There will be ample opportunity for participants to discuss particular areas of interest with the tutors, who are leading experts in their field.
The fully inclusive residential fee, covering tuition, all course materials, accommodation and all meals, is £515. The non-residential fee is £410.
Members of UKIC receive a 10% discount.
