Historic Conservation Study Day

Tuesday, February 13, 2018

Join Curator & Head of Learning Gareth Williams and experts from the Hamilton Kerr Institute for a fascinating and fact-filled day at Weston Park to learn more about the challenges that the Foundation faces and have the unique opportunity to see at first hand some of the work involved.

Weston Park is dedicated to the conservation of Weston Park and its world class collections in perpetuity. The historic former home of the Earls of Bradford holds a staggering 30,000 objects ranging from portraits by van Dyck to 1980s family photographs, from Chippendale chairs to stuffed parrots – all of which require specialist care and attention.

Spring cleaning offers us all a chance to reassess our treasured possessions, whilst at Weston Park this work is done on a wholly different scale, with important conservators such as the Hamilton Kerr Institute from Cambridge, playing a part in safeguarding the present and future for the House’s indigenous treasures at this time of year.

Price includes lecture, expert led tour, demonstration, two course lunch in the Dining Room, morning tea/ coffee and biscuits and a copy of the Weston Park guidebook.

£75.00 per person.

All profit benefits the conservation & educational work of the Weston Park Foundation.

Places are limited and prior booking is required. To book tickets please telephone Julieanne McMahon on 01952 852130 or email julieanne@weston-park.com
