The Centre for Photographic Conservation
Course tutors Ian L. Moor and Angela H. Moor

The Centre has for over 28 years responded to the needs of fellow
professionals offering a programme of courses and workshops on
aspects of the preservation and conservation of historic
photographs. We are happy to announce that we will offer an extended
programme of courses in 2009. The Centre's courses offer
conservators and other heritage professionals specialist training in
this challenging field; enabling them to polish their practical
skills and upgrade their knowledge of current developments and
techniques. Course tutors are Ian Moor and Angela Moor who
communicate their knowledge, expertise and passion in such a way as
to bring alive the history and diversity of photography whilst still
fully addressing the 21st Century problems of preserving and
conserving this evocative medium. Their approach can not fail to
stimulate participants to a deeper understanding of, and
professional growth in, this demanding discipline.
