Event Information

This morning webinar will provide a unique opportunity to learn about the composition and use of traditional paint from a leading expert in the field.

Historic paint consultant Patrick Baty, one of the most respected international authorities on traditional pigments and their decorative application, will give a rare half-day series of lectures for an Irish audience. The morning programme will initially guide attendees through the make-up of traditional paint, including pigments, binders and solutions, and how this influenced the manufacture of paint and the development of colour. The use and application of paint will follow in two in-depth lectures, exploring how technology and fashion influenced decorative conventions, palettes and notions of colour theory in the period spanning 1700-1955 - giving attendees a unique insight into the decoration of the historic interior and exterior elements.

The webinar will provide an invaluable opportunity for specifiers, including architects, conservators, historic building owners and managers, homeowners and interested members of the public to learn from a leading expert with decades of experience in this fascinating arena. Three opportunities for questions and answers will allow for audience engagement and exchange.
