This one-day workshop is tailored to the needs of commercial framers

mounting techniques.  Others interested in the subject are also

Serious damage can be caused to artworks by poor quality materials
and techniques; the first session will show examples of this.
Participants will be shown the different types of mountboard and
hinging materials.  Details of materials suppliers and non-damaging
techniques will be provided.

Practical demonstrations of paste making and hinge cutting will take
place with the opportunity for individual practice.

The training and work of conservators (what they do and why) will be
briefly covered.  This will be illustrated by slides showing various
conservation treatments.  Visible signs of deterioration (i.e. what
to look for when discussing customers' artworks) will also be
covered.  There are considerable advantages to the framer in
building a working relationship with a conservator.  Details of how
to contact local specialist conservators will be given out.

There will be time for questions.

Costs: UKP60 before 1 June UKP70 after 1 June.  Includes coffee,
buffet lunch and tea.
