Career and Professional Development Courses in 2017 at
The Centre has for over 37 years responded to the needs of fellow professionals offering a programme of courses and workshops on aspects of the preservation and conservation of historic photographs. We are happy to announce that The Centre will offer a reduced programme of courses in 2017. 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 can not 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.
A seven-week "Certificated" career and professional development course for experienced conservators and conservation students seeking to increase and develop their knowledge, skills and experience in the field of photographic conservation. The course programme skillfully blends together the history of photography and the theory of photo-chemistry with the practical hands-on skills needed for the preservation and conservation treatment of photographs, which is the main emphasis of the course.
Throughout the course participants will not only produce reference images and study materials, which complement the course notes and documentation of the work studies they will undertake, but, will also have a unique opportunity to assemble a collection of comparative historic images for identification and verification purposes.
Clear guidelines will be given for the recognition of all processes examined including the confusing array of non-silver, erroneously called 'photomechanical' processes.
Courses at The Centre are no longer subject to V.A.T. (Value Added Tax)
The Centre also offers heritage and business institutions the opportunity to train their personnel In-house. Training courses both practical or theoretical are offered in all aspects of the preservation and conservation of photographic materials, disaster preparedness, recovery and rehabilitation techniques and procedures, and enable collectors or collections managers in both the public and private sectors to more accurately identify local, geographic and in-house needs. In-house training courses are structured and tailored to your individual needs, taking advantage of economies of scale and can be scheduled in appropriate time slots.
The Centre is able to offer lectures or lecture programmes on the History and Social History of Photography and on all aspects of Photographic Preservation, Conservation and Restoration, including the handling and storage of family genealogical collections.
