SSCR Perth Flood Seminar

Scottish Society for Conservation and Restoration
Perth Flood Seminar: Every Cloud Has a Silver Lining
Perth Museum and Art Gallery
George Street, Perth, Scotland
June 7 2000

There can be few conservators working in Scotland who have not had
some contact with the objects and works of art damaged by the Perth
flood of 1993 at Perth museum and the surrounding buildings. Now, as
the last of the work is finally completed, it is clear that this
major disaster has had at least one positive outcome: the creation
of a wealth of invaluable experience in dealing with water damage.
SSCR invites all those involved in caring for collections to benefit
from this knowledge. All delegates will receive a copy of a
publication prepared in conjunction with the seminar, containing not
only papers presented on the day but also further contributions from
other conservators involved in the treatment of Perth's flooded


    Susan Payne, Perth museum and Art gallery; Donald Forbes,
    National Galleries of Scotland; Graciela Ainsworth, Sculpture
    Conservation; Claire Meredith, Conservation Studio, Hopetoun
    House; Vanessa Charles, Dundee University Library Conservation
    Unit; Amanda Clydesdale, AOC Scotland Ltd.; Derek Halliday,
    Gilder; Chris Harvey, Paper & Photographic Conservator.

There will be a panel comprising of speakers and Perth museum staff
inviting questions and discussion from delegates at the end of the
morning and afternoon sessions.
