Care and Conservation Seminar with AICCM Conservator Melanie Fihelly

Here at Historic Ormiston House we have missed our visitors so much since our temporary COVID closure! We are getting ready to open back up to our guests soon, which will include Sunday afternoons when you can visit us (watch this space for booking details and opening dates), the upcoming 2020 Small Museums and Galleries Conference, and a Care and Conservation seminar!

Next Thursday 15 October AICCM accredited conservator Melanie Fihelly will be holding a Care and Conservation training seminar at Historic Ormiston House! This will be a wonderful time to discover the causes of deterioration in your collection, antiques or treasures, and find the best ways to clean and store your collection! This event is supported by Griffith University and we are delighted to be able to share such a wonderful event with the community.

The best part is that this is a stand-alone event – so even if you are not a conference delegate, you can still purchase tickets to this event! Tickets are only $80 per person and include light refreshments on registration, the seminar with Melanie and lunch at beautiful Historic Ormiston House.

Registration starts at 9.30, and the seminar runs from 10 am to 12 noon. Lunch will be provided after the seminar. Bookings close this weekend, so to read more about what Melanie will discuss, go to our website here:
