Care and Conservation of Carriages

Issues and approaches in the care and conservation of carriages is
the latest course to be announced in the 'professionals in practice'
programme at West Dean College.

Aimed at specialists and practitioners, who are concerned with the
care, interpretation and preservation of horse-drawn carriages, the
course is led by Chris Nicholson, the advisor on carriages to the
National Trust, and Stephen Conway, a freelance carriage

The event commences with a one-day conference, designed in
collaboration with the National Trust, at the Royal Mews in London,
including a tour the Royal Collection. This is followed by two days
at West Dean College where participants will have the opportunity to
examine and discuss treatment issues for the Duke of Norfolk's State
Chariot, a 19th Century brougham and a four-wheeled dog cart.

In addition to the course leaders, other acknowledged experts
including practising conservators, carriage historians and curators,
will contribute to the teaching.
