The course covers historic technology, chemistry and use of leather and current practices in its conservation. The format of the course includes lectures, demonstrations and practical sessions.
Next year’s course will be held 17-20 March 2014. Further details can be obtained from West Dean – or The Leather Conservation Centre.
