The Conservation of Historic Interiors - 13-14th June 2024
Date: 13-14 June 2024
Location Wightwick Manor, Wolverhampton and Westwood House, Droitwich Spa, Worcestershire.
How do you peel away the layers of a historic interior and discover what is really ‘significant’? Once you have understood the interior how do you install services - electricity, security and fire detection systems? Using Wightwick Manor as a case study the day will progress to how the National Trust conservators identify the agents of deterioration within the mansion and deal with both preventative and remedial conservation. The second day will take a closer look at the plastered, papered and painted finishes of historic interiors.
