Horology courses

This five-day course is for people who want to start repairing antique clocks. It is ideal for people who collect and want to service, maintain or restore these clocks or who wish to learn how to do so as part of the distance learning course.

You do not have to be a professional and you do not need qualifications.

You learn about the movement, design and layout of antique clocks. You look at methods of repair, restoration and conservation. This includes the use of tools and equipment, making missing parts, and how to dismantle, assemble and clean antique clocks.

For this course you can bring your own antique clock to work on. This should be a simple clock such as a 30-hour long case or a single train. Some clocks are unsuitable for this course, including carriage, chiming and musical clocks. Alternatively, if you want us to provide the clock, please let us know in advance.

Please note that it may be impossible to complete a full repair or restoration. You may have to pay for parts that you get from material suppliers during the course.

You can bring a notebook and camera to record your progress and the stages of a specific repair.

Cost: £810 including B&B for 4 nights (£650 without B&B)
