Become a member and join the debate


A forum exists to encourage debate and dialogue and the Traditional Paint Forum is no exception. The vibrancy and debate generated is a direct result of the enthusiasm of our members. We welcome anyone who has an interest in decoration in an architectural context and because of our holistic interest in the subject our current membership base reflects a diverse number of skills and experiences.

The membership includes:

  • Architectural historians
  • Conservation officers
  • Architects and surveyors
