The Natural History Museum is delighted to host the International Mountmakers Forum (IMF) UK Kick-start Event. The IMF was established in 2008, creating a community that shares knowledge, experience and ideas related to mount fabrication and production. We invite you to join us at this unique event, where you can meet the forum founders, McKenzie Lowery and BJ Farr from the Getty Villa, in Los Angeles, and other mountmakers, and learn more about the IMF, its arrival in the UK and how to get involved.
