The Guercino Research and Conservation Project, presented by Simone Mancini, Head of Conservation, National Gallery of Ireland

Conservation-restoration of furniture, gilding and decorative woodwork for the National Trust at Mount Stewart House, presented by Fergus Purdy, specialist in the treatment of furniture and wooden objects. 

Fergus will discuss his contribution to the recent comprehensive conservation programme at the Mount Stewart House, a National Trust property in Co. Down.
