The first part of the course is a shared introductory unit, which brings together the students from across the two pathways. Each student will then focus on one of the individual pathways.
This pathway focuses on conservation and preservation management of images executed on paper covering a wide range of materials including prints, drawings and watercolours with an emphasis on both conservation practice and theory.
This pathway focuses on learning structures of different historical styles of books, covering the broad international and historical spectrum of bookbinding and book structures.
Our MA Conservation students benefit from the College’s strong connections to London’s heritage community, which includes The British Library, Kew Gardens, London Museum, London Metropolitan Archives, The National Maritime Museum, Tate, the V & A Museum, The Wellcome Trust and many more.
Jocelyn Cuming has extensive experience as a book and preventive conservator. Prior to working at Camberwell, Cuming worked in New Zealand where she set up the National Preservation Office, and as a private book conservator in Rome. More recently, Cuming's worked for the Islamic Museum of Art in Qatar.
Our MA Conservation graduates progress into a range of career paths within the heritage industry including museum education, curating, exhibition design, tourism, museum studies as well as taking on roles as Conservation professionals.
