BAFRA are pleased to confirm their next training day will be held by Jim Broughton of “Broughton Restorations” and Mark Pargeter of “Buscot Antiques”
Jim is a commercial antique restorer / conservator with over thirty 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 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 Mark Pargeter has been with Jim for seven years and now a highly skilled restorer in his own right.
The day will run from 10.00 am to 4.30 pm and you will need to bring your own lunch. The cost to BAFRA Accredited members is free, all other membership categories £10 with £50.00 for members of the public.
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 on a sample board provided.
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).
The Event will be held at
Buscot Antiques, 1 Shrivenham Business Park, Majors Rd. Watchfield, Oxfordshire, SN6 8TZ
Booking should be made through Head Office at: 18 Merry Lane, Sansaw Heath, Nr Shrewsbury, Shropshire SY4 3JS. T: 01939 210826 E: [email protected]
