MA Collections Care and Conservation Management Alumna and Access and Participation Officer Alex has written about accessibility in the heritage sector, in particular in light of the challenges posed from the past year.
The Solar Time Clock is attracting international media and
sector attention and is a unique, super complex mechanical clock
which can be set for longitude and latitude. No other mechanical
clock has ever been made with such a complication. George talks
about his path to becoming an independent clockmaker.
After completing the MA in Conservation Studies at West Dean, I
served as an assistant for six weeks in the conservation studio of
Michael Parfett in London. Michael works primarily on harps,
harpsichords and frames, and the short work placement offered the
opportunity to gain experience in conserving musical instruments,
decorative surfaces and gilding.
