Professional Conservators in Practice

West Dean College has joined with other institutions to develop a series of short courses designed for professional conservators to refresh their skills and update their knowledge of developments in materials and techniques.

Collaboration with relevant organisations and specialists has resulted in an outstanding range of expertise on each course. Teaching approaches vary according to the demands of the subject matter. Some courses are workshop-based with a high practical content while others are conference-style events.

The Professional Conservators in Practice programme is a series of short courses designed for professional conservators to refresh skills and update knowledge of developments in materials and techniques. The courses are workshop-based or conference-style and the student to tutor ratio is kept low to gain high levels of person tuition. Courses vary but might include Art and Object Handling; Conservation of Leather; Preventive Conservation or Conservation of Carpets. The leaders and tutors are all practising conservators. More information on each course is available below.
