Instructors for conservation seminars sought

I  organise international conservation seminars in Barcelona (Spain)
and I'd like to contact professionals who would come to Barcelona
and teach a seminar.

The topics I'm interested in are: science for conservators and
curators, identification of materials, identification techniques and
conservation in general.   The participants are conservators,
curators and art historians. The seminars are translated to English
and Spanish, seminars taught in French are welcomed too.

I  studied the 12th grade in a High school in Georgia, USA. Then I
had my bachelor in Art History for the University Autonoma de
Barcelona (UAB).

>From my childhood I began to be interested in  conservation and in
the family workshop I learned painting restoration
<URL:>.  Before I finish my
studies I was aboard learning some new techniques : workshop
practices in  Basel, Switzerland 1992 and in 1993 I went to an
archaeological expedition  to do some restorations in Oxirrinc,

In 1994 I opened my bookshop in Barcelona (close to the MACBA
museum) specialized in conservation and museology books. This last
four years I'm organising international conservation seminars.
