2007 MRCG Mastering Fills Workshop
Midwest Regional Conservation Guild (MRCG)

Immediately following the 2007 Annual Meeting, MRCG will be hosting
the Mastering Fills Workshop.  This workshop is being supported with
funding from The American Institute for Conservation of Artistic and
Historic Works.

Specialists in painting, objects and paper conservation will survey
filling materials and techniques for a wide spectrum of artistic and
historic artifacts.  The Workshop will be multi-disciplinary, with
information highly useful to conservators treating paintings,
objects, paper, photographic materials and mixed-media works.

The workshop will take place October 8-9, 2007 at the Campbell
Center <URL:>, which is about 180
miles West of Chicago, in Mount Carroll, Illinois.

This is an extremely rare comprehensive course that will explore the
myriad of materials and methods used for compensating for losses in
a wide variety of artifact types.  Specialists in  paintings, paper
and objects will provide an overview of the various fill materials
commonly used in their specialty, with an emphasis on a
multi-disciplinary approach particularly useful for composite
objects or for challenging or problematic media.  The course will
offer both lectures, studio sessions and sessions involving
inter-active dialog in order to maximize opportunities for learning.
