A comprehensive introduction to the conservation of ironwork, covering historical context, metallurgy of wrought iron and steels, traditional tools, techniques, materials, design and manufacture, with a focus on the processes of restoration, surface preparation and treatments, specification & standards for heritage ironwork contracts, including a procurement and pricing exercise.
Delegates will learn the basic principles of assessing historic ironwork in situ and making decisions about its care. Tender procedures often require the commissioner of the work to have knowledge of the medium in order to procure the best value. Lecturers GEOFF WALLIS & CHRIS TOPP themselves are craftspeople and acknowledged experts in the field of historic ironwork conservation.
