The City & Guilds of London Art School is seeking applications for a sessional tutor and specialist in book conservation for its thriving Conservation Department.
We are inviting applications from experienced book conservators to contribute to the delivery of the newly established Books & Paper Conservation BA and MA awards. In 2020, the Art School enlarged the longstanding Conservation Department, doubling its size and adding books & paper conservation to run in parallel with conservation of cultural artefacts made of stone, wood and objects with decorative surfaces. With the support of industry experts from the Tate, National Archives, Fitzwilliam Museum and College of Arms, amongst others, we have created courses that fully explore the depth of both practical and theoretical knowledge and skills necessary for professional practice, and are proud to already be working with leading experts on the delivery of our 1st year of the BA course.
