NHIG partner with Icon for new series of online evening events

Conversations Build Understanding

FREE online evening event
Wednesday 28th October 7.00-8.00pm
‘TENDERING: Up to a standard or down to a price?’

This is the first in a series of FREE online evening events, hosted jointly by the NHIG and Icon Metals Group, in which invited guests discuss and compare their professional experiences, providing interesting insights.

TENDERING is used for all kinds of contracts, but how appropriate is it for blacksmiths? This discussion will investigate the pros and cons of the tendering process for highly skilled craftspeople.

NHIG host Bethan Griffiths will be joined by Conservation Architect, Rhys Brookes, and Ironwork Conservator, Geoff Wallis. Their discussion will be based on answering delegate questions, but will encompass:

  • How the modern tendering process is geared up for products not skills
  • How both parties can help eliminate technical errors
  • Approaching the 2” thick contract when only one page relates to the actual work
  • The contract as a ‘meeting of minds’, a foundation for long term working relationships

Although this talk will focus on ironwork conservation, the same issues relate to other crafts, so everyone is welcome.

Questions on this subject can be asked live, but if you have one ahead of the event, please email it to NHIG Administrator Jessica:
