This is a message for UK conservators:

    The UKIC (United Kingdom Institute for Conservation) Furniture
    Section is planning a visit to Pebbles Island Resource Center,
    Waterford, NY, USA.

    A kind offer has been made by one of the participants at the
    Modern Materials Conference held at the NMGM Conservation
    Centre, Liverpool, to host a visit at the Pebbles Island
    Resource Center furniture Studio in Waterford, NY.  In addition
    to a furniture and wooden objects section, the centre also
    includes paper, textiles, general objects and painting
    conservation laboratories.

    With contacts in various local institutions in this area of the
    USA, it may also be possible to visit the laboratories of the
    Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, the Winterthur Museum and
    Conservation Center in Delaware and a private conservation
    studio in Boston.

    In order to fulfil such a programme it would be necessary to
    organize a 7 days visit to be held in Spring 2000 (last week in

    Before replying to our potential host and organizing an initial
    itinerary, we would like to receive as broad an indication as
    possible as to the interest in this project.

    A prompt response to this proposal would be appreciated to
    enable us to arrange the most advantageous deal for interested
