The long-awaited return of our popular 2-day CPD in the Conservation of Architectural Ironwork
Jacob’s Well, Holy Trinity, Micklegate, York YO1 6LE
29th-30th September 2022
Who is it for?
Aimed at craft practitioners and consultative professionals, this course is an 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. The lectures will be complemented by a site visit to survey historic ironwork and develop a strategy for its conservation.
The IHBC (Institute of Historic Building Conservation) recognises this course as contributing to mandatory CPD requirements for its Members.
Aims of the day
Delegates will learn the basic principles of assessing historic ironwork 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. We aim to equip those wishing to commission work on listed ironwork with information they will find essential in the writing of specifications.
