Conservation Summer School:  Conservation Meets Its Maker
West Dean College
The Edward James Foundation
August 18-September 5, 2004

Opportunities are available to young conservators and art historians
from Europe and the United States to join an advanced study course
at West Dean College The purpose of this interdisciplinary workshop
is to offer an invaluable opportunity to investigate and practise
the skills and techniques used by the makers of objects.

The workshop will take a broad perspective from observation of
artefacts, materials and making, through to current conservation
practice and emergent conservation techniques. Participants will
explore the making of objects as a learning process towards
interpretation and conservation of the original.

The format includes demonstrations, practical sessions, lectures,
visits and case studies. Experienced tutors will encourage mutual
exchange of ideas and experiences within the group. There will be an
emphasis on shared experience and participants will be given the
opportunity to discuss and present their personal research

Participants will be selected on the basis of a statement of
interest, brief C.V. and reference from a personal tutor. Tuition is
free but participants are responsible for the cost of their
accommodation and their own travel costs.
