The visit will include a tour of the facilities with special emphasis placed on the ceramics kept at the Centre. The tour will be followed by a special 90-minute talk by HCC conservators that will focus on good storage & display practices for ceramics, and the topics of evaluating cracks and other flaws, restoration techniques and whether-or-not to repair. Do note that photographs are not allowed, and no artefacts may be brought into the building.
