CONSERVATION DEMONSTRATIONS
Students studying on our BA (Hons) Conservation: Books & Paper and BA (Hons) Conservation: Stone, Wood & Decorative Surfaces courses will give demonstrations of different conservation techniques and processes. The courses equip students with the specialist knowledge and skills to conserve and restore cultural heritage for the future.
