We are delighted to be sponsoring two fantastic skills workshops to celebrate the launch of the Highland Archaeological Research Framework as part of the exciting schedule of events for this year’s Highland Archaeology Festival.
Introduction to Finds Conservation
27th September 1pm-4pm. Gretel Evans (Conservation Manager, AOC Archaeology) will deliver an online workshop telling us everything we need to know about archaeological conservation – from an overview of conservation techniques and how to clean and package finds in the field, to general storage and condition checking. This event is aimed at museum professionals and volunteers, individuals working on archaeological sites (professional or amateur!), metal detectorists, students, or anyone with a keen interest in archaeological conservation!
Note: This is a FREE online event – book your place here.
28th September 10am-12pm and 2pm-4pm. Expert illustrator Thomas Small (Small Finds & Design) will deliver two workshops at Nairn Community & Arts Centre. The workshops will focus on practical exercises, teaching the principles of pottery and small finds illustration with a straight-forward guide for participants to take home!
This is a FREE event open to all! Booking is essential. To book a place on this workshop, or to find out more – please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
