Ruth has run several successful training courses for heritage sector staff and volunteers, including several for the Sussex Museums Group. Ruth has also taught the 'Adhesives for Conservation' module for the Book and Paper Conservation course at West Dean College, West Sussex.
We have developed a practical 5 day course, 'Understanding Book Structures for Conservation'. This is designed to give delegates a sound practical basis to the basic skills involved in binding as well as the more advanced knowledge required to understand historical books and library materials and their manufacture. It is aimed at people who want to gain valuable practical and theoretical experience before studying Book and Paper Conservation in more depth at a registered college.
One-to-one training at the studio is available on request. We are also now offering student placements in the studio during the summer. Please contact us for more details.
