On behalf of the Conservation Analytical Laboratory, Smithsonian

Stain Removal: Theory and Practice #C98-04 April 1-3 $250 This
course is designed for conservators of porous materials--especially
textiles--with a particular interest in the theory associated with
stain removal as well as its practice. Dr. Heasoon Rhee and Mary
Ballard will review surfactants, solvent systems, and reagents;
discussions and numerous laboratory exercises to treat various soils
and stains follow.

Margaret Fikioris, Mechthild Flury-Lemberg, Nobuko Kajitani and
Sheila Landi will review their approaches to textile conservation
and discuss the individual problems raised by each participant.
Participants will be selected on the basis of the level of the
problem submitted and its appropriateness to discussion. Please see
specific announcement for details.
