Professional Conservators in Practice
Specialised Techniques for Polychromed and Gilded Surfaces
September 2005

    This is a practical course providing participants with a greater
    understanding of making techniques, an overview of materials and
    an opportunity to discuss and compare options for conservation
    and restoration.

    Participants must have had basic experience in gilding.  They
    may be junior conservators, or more experienced conservators who
    need to develop their range of skills.  They may also be gilding
    specialists, who have little opportunity for further study of
    traditional techniques.

    Course Leader:  Judith Wetherall, private sector conservator and
