Feather Conservation - a two-day workshop
Wednesday-Thursday 17-18 October 2007

The Institute of Conservation (ICON) Ethnography Group is organising
a two-day workshop to study the conservation of feathers, held at
the conservation studios, Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery, UK and
led by Allyson Rae. Allyson has extensive experience in the
conservation of artefacts incorporating feathers. Now a freelance
conservator, she was, until recently, Head of Organic Artefacts
Conservation at the British Museum.

Encompassing both theoretical and practical sessions, the workshop
will cover the structure and nature of feathers, their causes of
deterioration and principles and practice for non-interventive and
basic interventive options (soil removal, reshaping, repair
techniques).  Participants have the opportunity to bring feathered
objects to the workshop for discussion.

The cost of the 2 day workshop is UKP200, includes materials,
handouts, tea and coffee but not lunches. 13 places are available. A
limited number of student places are available at the reduced cost
of UKP150. Please send proof of status with your registration form.

Please contact Cordelia Rogerson <cordelia.rogerson [at] rca__ac__uk> for
an electronic registration form and draft programme.
