A Clock Repair Course
You might be surprised how much you can learn in a weekend clock repair course.
What you will learn
Learn how clocks work and why they sometimes don’t.
Nigel and Karoliina cover all types of mechanical clocks in a two-day clock repair course and there is plenty of opportunity to dismantle, repair and re-assemble.
Nigel is the co-author of Maintaining Longcase Clocks, and Clock Cases, their Construction, Restoration and Conservation published by Crowood Press: As a professional status member he is currently the secretary of the Irish Horological Craft forum.
Learn how to estimate when a clock was made by understanding the evolution of fashions in dials, hands, movements and cases.Learn something about the development of clocks from hand-made to mass-produced.
What you need to bring
You don’t need to bring a poorly clock but if you do, you might well get it fixed during the weekend. You can bring as many as you like if only to discuss.
At least you’ll understand what’s gone wrong and what’s needed.
What you don’t need to bring
Food (unless you have a special diet). Pepie provides delicious lunches and snacks at break-times.
We usually start about 9:30 and finish late afternoon but entirely personal choice (We usually like to finish by about 6:00 in the evening)
