Conservation Framing Workshop for Commercial Framers
Venue: Nuneaton Museum and Art Gallery, Riversley Park, Nuneaton,
Warwickshire CV11 5TU
Tutor: Graeme Storey
4 July 2001

    This one day workshop is tailored to the needs of commercial
    framers who wish to learn more about practical conservation
    framing and mounting techniques. Others interested in the
    subject are also welcome. Serious damage is 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 mount-board and hinging materials. Details of
    materials suppliers and non-damaging techniques will be
    provided. Practical demonstrations of past 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.
