NHIG Conference - Tradition and Innovation: The Evolution of Craftsmanship in Ironwork Conservation

8th Oct, 2024
Hampton Court Palace

As 21st-century ironwork conservators, we have more options available to us than ever before. But, in a field where each project presents new and unique challenges, how do we know which materials and techniques are appropriate for the job? Are the 'old ways' always the best? Or can new technologies offer viable alternatives? What are the parameters when using modern materials on historic fabric? When is it appropriate and when inappropriate? And what do we need to consider to ensure longevity? These are some of the questions we will be addressing at our Tradition and Innovation Conference. From fixings and coatings to casting, scanning and 3-D printing, we'll be asking a variety of craft and conservation professionals to share their experience.
