WHConservation are pleased to announce their new ‘Hands on with History’ workshops, in conjunction with the Heritage Skills Centre, Lincoln Castle. The ‘Hands On’ workshops have been designed specifically to give beginners and the
general public the opportunity to do just that – get ‘touchy-feely’ with historic objects, and learn real conservation skills that they can use to care for their own precious heirlooms or collectables at home.
There will be running five different workshops, all with a different skill or type of object in mind, between September 2014 and July 2015. Workshop titles are:
– “Say no to Brasso!” – An introduction to cleaning historic objects
– Packing and storing your family heirlooms at home
– Your family tree: An introduction to caring for family archives
– Caring for your historic textiles at home, and
– Introduction to ceramics repair and conservation
Bookings are being handled directly by the Heritage Skills Centre, and discounts are available for multiple bookings. Workshops are designed to be run in a relaxed way, with reference to real historic objects wherever possible to guide learning and bring the experience to life.
If your site or group would like to receive professional A5 leaflets publicising the series, please let us know (contact details below). Alternatively, a PDF version of the leaflet is attached if you’d like to share the details electronically via your
