Sometimes we come across someone who has a fascinating story to tell. Phillipa Durkin is just one of those people!

Phillipa is a private conservator based in Wellington and a member of the NZ Conservators of Cultural Materials. With her experience and knowledge in conserving paper, parchment and photos, she went on an exhibition in Antarctica to work on objects at Shackleton's Hut.

On Friday, 30 September, Phillipa will join us at La Bella Italia for a talk about the objects she worked with, Shackleton's hut and the experience of wintering over in Antarctica.  

Please register to join us for this fantastic talk. We will start with a light lunch and listen to Phillipa, with time for questions.
