Supports Training Workshop – An Introduction to Art Handling

Category: CCA Supports | Tickets |


CCA x Jerwood = Supports is offering a series of training sessions to expand artists’ skills sets, increase employability and build confidence. These workshops have been developed based on the responses from our recent Training Survey when we asked you what training you would need to benefit your practice, and what additional training might enable you to earn more income to support your practice. This opportunity is for artists who are not currently in any type of formal education who have begun their professional practice, based nationally or internationally.

We are delighted to announce the next in the series An Introduction to Art Handling: With Corrie Masson, MA Conservation of Fine Art. This training workshop will take place in CCA, 10-12 Artillery Street, Derry~Londonderry, BT48 6RG on Tuesday 24 September 2024, 1–4pm. It will be led by Corrie Masson, a Fine Art Conservator from, and based in Northern Ireland. Corrie works for private clients, public galleries and heritage organisations throughout Ireland. Her specialist areas include painting conservation, preventive conservation, and collections care.


An Introduction to Art Handling: With Corrie Masson, MA Conservation of Fine Art:

This workshop will outline the major do’s and don’ts when it comes to handling works of art, as well as practical and affordable tips for their handling, display and storage. We will consider a range of artworks including paintings, works of art on paper and sculpture. Participants are encouraged to bring their own case study examples to the session. (NB: small portable artworks may be brought to the session, otherwise photographs/descriptions of scenarios are preferred)

The workshop will benefit emerging artists who may not have access to specialist art handling companies and who want to learn how to minimise the risk of damage to themselves and their artworks. It may also be of interest to those wishing to pursue a career as an art technician. No prior knowledge is required.

You can book your free place for this training workshop here. It is suited to those aged 18 and above. The session will be recorded and available as a resource via our Supports page.
