Workshops for book and paper conservators at York

Book and paper conservators are being sought to present additional
professional development workshops at York Minster Library in 2006.

Have you reviewed or refined a particular conservation treatment,
possibly as part of your Continual Professional Development (CPD) or
in the course of your own work?  Would you now be interested in
sharing that experience with a small group of conservators in a
purpose-built paper and book conservation studio?  If so, you are
encouraged to submit a proposal for a demonstration or training
session.  You do not necessarily need to have developed an original
technique or treatment but you may have searched the literature on a
topic and refined your own working practise.  We would like to give
you the opportunity to demonstrate your preferred methods and
discuss some of the reasons behind any choices that you made.

The paper conservation studio at York Minster Library and Archive
was recently refurbished with assistance from the Heritage Lottery
Fund.  As well as providing a book and archive conservation service
for the Minster, the space has been designed and equipped to
accommodate practical workshops and training days for book, archive
and art on paper conservators.  Several such one day workshops have
already taken place this summer and have been well supported.

People interested in presenting a workshop are invited to submit a
brief proposal, outlining a topic or range of conservation
treatments. Opportunities for participants to gain 'hands-on'
experience, or to practise a variety of techniques, will be
welcomed.  Workshops can run for a half, single, or up to two
consecutive days.  The workshop programme will run between May and
October 2006 and proposals should indicate any preferred dates. The
tutor will be responsible for providing any additional materials
required for the workshop demonstrations and should suggest a fee
per participant in their proposal that includes these costs.  Space
is available for up to ten participants. Sessions can take place
between 9:30am and 4:30pm.

The 2006 programme of workshops are currently being organised by
Richard Hawkes, a paper conservator and visiting tutor at Camberwell
College of Art, London.  If you would like further information
regarding the facilities at York of any other aspect of the paper
conservation workshop programme please contact Richard +44 1765
