Care of collections
Canons Ashby - Contact:Bridget Chapman (01604 813445).
It is easy enough to see damage wrought by light and dirt on our own textiles and furniture, but what about temperature and humidity? Understanding the requirements of collections, both public and private, helps us to care for them, whether it is the re-decorating of a listed building, conserving a painting with darkened varnish, or the dilemma of working on a chair with original upholstery, much research is needed before work can begin. Visiting speakers will explain the processes involved in the care and conservation of buildings, archives and artefacts.
