Edge Tools for Conservators
West Dean College, West Sussex
October 5-7-1999

Tutor: Bernard Allen. A two-day practical course for conservators in
the making and sharpening of knives and tools with the chance to
explore a range of different techniques and equipment. Through
lectures and practical demonstrations conservators will gain
experience and understanding of different types of steel and the
correct techniques for creating and maintaining a sharp edge on
their tools. Course participants are invited to bring their own
tools to work on, and all students should have the opportunity to
make a knife. The excellent workshop facilities at West Dean will
help students gain a thorough grounding to a very high standard in
this vital aspect of conservators' work. To make the most of time
available, the course will begin with a lecture on Tuesday evening,
and will include an extra workshop session on Wednesday evening.
