Conservation Cleaning I and II

Our second and third workshop on June 17 and July 08, 2016 dealt with conservation cleaning. Students were introduced to some general conservation practices and agents of deterioration, with a focus on light, relative humidity (RH) and temperature, in museums and historic houses.
During both workshops students got an insight into the historical and present-day conservation and housekeeping techniques of metalworks, wood decorations, paintings, glass windows, textiles and ceramics.
