Join us for a Heritage Conservation Workshop this June holidays to learn more about the importance of heritage, who looks after it and why we must protect it. Families will also learn more about how museums and art galleries look after their artefacts, which may be affected by light, temperature, humidity and object handling. Each parent-child team will also receive hands-on experience in applying conservation techniques to conserve artefacts!
