Collection care training

The training programmes run by the Regional Collection Care team will remain free, and will be open to everyone working or volunteering within London museums.

As well as the main training programme, we also offer Flexible training, where the Regional Collection Care team come out to your institution to train you on site. For further information regarding our flexible training offer please email Libby Finney at [email protected].

Many collection care courses come with free kits which complement the course and enable participants to put their new found knowledge into practice back at their institution.

Access to more free conservation & collection care advice for London Region Museums
As a result of the lockdowns and closures to the public experienced by the sector during the past two years, you may have had some time to consider collection issues which often get overtaken by day to day work and activities. Perhaps you would like to get some help with addressing them. If you are a member of staff or volunteer in a London region museum and would like advice from the Museum of London team of conservators via a Zoom meeting, we would be delighted to hear from you. Our conservators cover the areas of paper, textiles, applied arts, archaeology and collection care. We can’t offer advice on treating specific objects, however if you would like to ask about issues such as storage, display, handling and packing, suitable environmental conditions or general conservation advice for your various collections then please email Libby on [email protected] and briefly describe your collection concerns and what you would like to discuss, then we will get together the people who can help and arrange a Zoom meeting with you.
