Always wanted to learn more about laser cleaning in art
conservation? Art Innovation presents a two-day workshop on laser
cleaning in art conservation.

The main objective of this course is to provide conservators and
conservation scientists with information and knowledge about laser
cleaning of art objects. This course will give insight in the
advantages and disadvantages of laser cleaning in different
application fields and hands-on experience with different kinds of
lasers. There is no special knowledge, skill or scientific
background necessary for this course, but a professional

takes place at Art Innovation, Hengelo, The Netherlands

Practical work is done at the laser laboratory of Art Innovation.
