Ever wonder how to care for your industrial artefacts but don’t know where to begin? Join us for a day of learning about the care and maintenance of industrial artefacts. This hands-on workshop will provide you with the knowledge and confidence to move forward with developing a preventative conservation and treatment plan for your collection.


This workshop will provide you with:

  • Overview of the care and conservation of industrial artifacts
  • Basic understanding between restoration, conservation, preservation and maintenance
  • How to develop a maintenance plan for a specific artefact or your entire collection
  • An understanding of conservation terms and resources
  • Information about impact of the environment on industrial artefacts
  • Information about wood, metal as well as mixed materials care
  • Documentation and condition reporting tips
  • Proper techniques and hands-on training from a professional conservator

This training is suitable for both museum professionals and volunteers responsible for industrial collections.


Participants should dress appropriately for the weather (as well as for hands-on work) as half the day will be outside working on agricultural industrial artefacts.
