Staff at A la Ronde are going back to the classroom in a bid to learn to care for the house’s many prints.

The conservation team, made up of conservation assistants Alison Marshall, Asha Kuczynska and assistant house steward Anna Jedzrejas will next month attend the double elephant workshop in Exeter for an art session in printmaking.

A la Ronde house steward Nicola Perryman said: “What better way to understand how to care for an object than to learn how it has been created in the first place.

“We have etchings and aquatint prints at A la Ronde that the conservation team care for.
