Event Description

In 2016 The Centre for Photographic Conservation is offering a reduced 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 cannot 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 fellow heritage professionals since 1981.

Whilst the courses at The Centre are intensive the 'Moors' still manage to maintain a friendly, enjoyable and informal atmosphere.
