Introduction to Feather Conservation
Horniman Museum, London
21-22 October 2013

A two day workshop on the conservation of feathers will be hosted by
the Horniman Museum, London, on 21-22 October 2013 and will be led
by Allyson Rae who has extensive experience in the conservation of
artefacts incorporating feathers. Now a freelance conservator, she
was Head of Organic Artefacts Conservation at the British Museum
until 2006.

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 for their care (soil removal, reshaping,
repair techniques). Participants are encouraged share their
experiences and challenges. The workshop will benefit those caring
for objects and textiles incorporating feathers and natural history

The cost of the 2 day workshop is UKP200 and includes materials,
hand outs and refreshments (excluding lunches).    A total of 10
places are available.
