Textile Conservation Group

From: Sarah Lowengard <sarahl>
Date: Tuesday, October 3, 2000
The next meeting of The Textile Conservation Group will be
Tuesday, October 10, 2000
at NY School of Interior Design
170 East 70th Street NYC, Seminar Room B

Elizabeth Eubanks will present:

A Master's Project, A Data Set ... and Variable Results

Intrigued by an award-winning study that used non-destructive
methods to identify synthetic dyes on the fiber via near-infrared
spectroscopy, Elizabeth set out to test the process for identifying
natural dyes for her Master's thesis.  What followed was not always
"according to the plan."  She will discuss the problems she
encountered with her research  and how she achieved workable
results, even with little technical training in natural dyeing and
spectroscopy.  This presentation will interest everyone concerned
with the realities of conservation research as well as dye analysis

Elizabeth Eubanks received her MS from University of Rhode Island in
1999 and currently works in the Anthropology Department at the
Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History.
