Event Description

This seven week Certificated course will comprise an intensive theory and practical workshop, for conservators and conservation students, aimed at introducing and developing knowledge and skills in the preservation, conservation and restoration treatment of photographic materials.

Strong emphasis will be placed upon the complex nature of photographic processes/images/materials, their development, specific and related conservation problems, their treatment, storage and exhibitioning and the ethics involved in determining and formulating practical, safe, conservation procedures.

The course will also include practical demonstrations, specific work studies, illustrated lectures, discussion periods, and an exhibition of photographic conservation and research work undertaken by The Centre. As part of the practical course work participants will also undertake two short research projects to complement and enhance the practical work studies.

Throughout the course participants will produce reference images and study materials which compliment the course Handbook, notes and documentation.

Course participants will also have the opportunity to visit, with the course tutors, The Fox Talbot Museum and Lacock Abbey The Royal Photographic Society and the Cannon Gallery at the Victoria and Albert Museum and other centres of excellence which will give them unique opportunities to examine 19th and 20th Century historic photographic images and materials.
