14 – 18 May 2012
The ‘Longford Academy’ (LA3) is the third in a series of advanced residential short courses on the conservation of traditional structures and heritage collections held at Woolmers and Brickendon Estates at Longford in Tasmania (World Heritage inscribed) to be staged by the APT Australasia Chapter. The course presenters are APT conservation experts in the subjects presented in the course.
The model of the course is collaborative learning and interactive professional development — participants share their acquired knowledge and collaborate in tutorials and practical hands-on activities. The theme in 2012 at LA3 is conservation quality and sustainability. Participants will:
- relax and learn in an environment rich in history in a cultural landscape of World Heritage significance
- investigate significant fabric, finishes and heritage collections
- gain valuable understandings on how to deal with complex challenges and obtain quality conservation outcomes.
The tuition fee of $1,200 ($900 for full-time students and APT members) covers all LA3 activities, refreshments and lunches. Accommodation, which is available on site at Woolmers Estate or Brickendon Historic Farming Village, is an additional cost. Places may be restricted.
