The Centre for Photographic Conservation is offering a programme of
courses and workshops on aspects of the preservation and
conservation of historic photographs.  The Centre's career and
professional development courses offer conservators and other
heritage professionals specialist training in this challenging
field; enabling them to hone 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 and
transient medium.  Their approach can not fail to stimulate
participants to a deeper understanding of, and professional growth
in this demanding discipline.

Ian and Angela have been sharing their knowledge and skills with
