West Dean College

Course Leader:  Linda Bullock

Participants may be craftsmen, conservators, art historians and
those with an interest in historic interiors.  They may be junior
conservators, or more experienced conservators who need to develop
their range of skills.

This course will equip participants with the current knowledge of
factors which affect the integrity of materials in collections, how
to assess and prioritise those risks and develop ways to mitigate
them appropriate to the collections and available resources.  The
topics covered will include monitoring and control of the
environment, light and lighting, gaseous and particulate pollutants,
biological agents (mould and pests) and the mechanical damage
resulting from handling, routine cleaning and the visitors
themselves. The course will include plenty of hands-on practical
sessions with the latest equipment and opportunities to exchange
ideas and experience.
