University of Cambridge Museums is organising a two-day course in the care and conservation of objects made from basketry materials taught by Barbara Wills.
Dates: 22 & 23 June 2016
Venue: The Fitzwilliam Museum and the Brighton Building Conservation Lab, Cambridge
Cost: £240 for both days, or £120 for Day 1 only
The course will cover the care of basketry and related materials, including practical hands-on sessions. 
On the first day participants will look at different types of baskets and their preventive care. This workshop is aimed at conservators, curators, museum assistants and technicians.
The second day will offer more specialist information, concentrating on mechanisms of deterioration and object treatment, with a focus on ancient Egyptian basketry. This day will be more suited to practical conservators.
