Due to new funding from The Pilgrim Trust, AIM is once again offering free training in collections care for staff and volunteers at AIM member museums, galleries and heritage sites.
These fun and hands on workshops will be led by Jane Thompson Webb, the Conservation Team Leader at Birmingham Museums Trust. Participants will gain the skills and confidence they need to spot the main agents of decay and how they can damage objects in your collections.
The dates and venues for these workshops are as follows:
- 7 March 2016: Galleries of Justice – Nottingham
- 9 March 2016: Kendal Museum – Kendal
- 15 March 2016: Banbury Museum – Banbury
- 19 April 2016: National Museum Scotland – Edinburgh
- 6 May 2016: Cornwall’s Regimental Museum – Bodmin
