What follows is an impartial review (i.e. I didn’t write it!) of our most recent ‘Venus’ workshop. Thanks to Elizabeth Jowett for taking part in the workshop and for writing the review, but also for using her own blog to provide an insight into the world of painting conservation. More broadly, her blog posts are valuable for revealing how one person has found their way of earning a living within the arts. The question of how to do interesting paid work within this sector is a recurrent theme with many of the people I know and work with. As such it is worth further examination and Elizabeth’s blog posts are a good way in. Enjoy!
It’s the start of another year, indeed another decade. It doesn’t feel like long enough since last January and once again it’s been a hectic start, …Hello 2020!
