BAFRA Colouring Clinic – Saturday 4th November 2017

BAFRA are pleased to confirm their next training day will be held by Jim Broughton and his colleague Mark Pargeter of “Alexander George Fine Antique Furniture Ltd” on the 4th November 2017

Following on from their previously well attended colouring days, accredited member Jim and Mark will be holding a “Colouring Clinic” at their workshops in Oxfordshire.

Delegates will bring along a small object (chair , small table, box etc) that requires help with the finishing process. We will cover all aspects of the finishing / colouring process as required.

The day will be very informal, starting at 10.00 am and finishing at 4.30 pm and you will need to bring your own lunch.

The cost to BAFRA Accredited and student members is free, all other membership categories £25 with £50 for non-members.

Jim is a commercial antique restorer / conservator with over thirty five years at the bench and is an accredited BAFRA member. He started his career as an apprentice cabinet maker aged sixteen and then moved into restoration shortly after, working for the renowned Witney Antiques for many years. For the last twenty-five years, Jim has run his own business and has taught many Students along the way, including teaching one day a week at the old Rycotewood College in Thame, Oxfordshire. His most recent trainee (and now business partner) Mark Pargeter has been with Jim for ten years now and is a highly skilled restorer in his own right. Jim and Mark will demonstrate colouring techniques which they use every day in the commercial restoration of antique furniture. This will include the use of acid, bleach, water colours and earth pigments. Students will then have the opportunity to try out these techniques. Materials will be provided but if you have your own colouring kit, please bring it along (it is always interesting to see what other people use).

Venue:      Wisteria Studios, Littleworth, Faringdon, Oxfordshire, SN7 8ED
