North West Branch – Approaches to Treatment for Common Causes of Degradation in Historic Tiles, Lesley Durbin, Tiles and Ceramics Society

3 April 2019

Following her successful introductory talk on tiles and ceramics, Lesley is back to give us a detailed seminar on common causes of degradation.  This talk will address the common causes of degradation found in historic tile schemes both wall and floor.  We will also look at the most appropriate methods of repair and conservation.  The talk will focus on late 19th century and 20th century tiles but with the opportunity to take a brief look at 18th century and medieval tiles as well. The talk will be power point illustrated and will give every opportunity to question and discuss as we progress. The emphasis is on collective learning rather than instruction.  Free to attend.

Refreshments at 5:30pm with the talk to start at 6pm.
