2 June - 5 June 2008

    The 4-day workshop, a collaboration between the CAC and the
    Canadian Conservation Institute, will be held at the McCord
    Museum.  The workshop New Methods of Cleaning Painted and
    Decorative Surfaces, Including the Modular Cleaning Program: a
    Systemic Approach to Cleaning Artworks is aimed at conservators
    involved in the cleaning of painted and decorative surfaces. The
    instructors, Richard Wolbers, Associate Professor, Art
    Conservation Department, University of Delaware, and Chris
    Stavroudis, Paintings Conservator in private practice, will
    present an overview of the theoretical principles needed to
    evaluate and formulate tailored aqueous and solvent-based
    cleaning systems for a variety of painted and decorative surface
    problems. The workshop will consist of lectures and practical
    session in the laboratory.

    Workshop topics will include: the characterization of painted
    surfaces; aqueous and solvent cleaning techniques;
    chelating/complexing materials, thickeners, gels, pastes and
    poultices; and resin soaps, enzymes and emulsions.  Problems
    will consist of soil, coating and overpaint removal.

    Participants will also have the opportunity to use the Modular
    Cleaning Program (MCP), developed by Chris Stavroudis and based
    on Richard Wolber's systemic approach to cleaning artworks. This
    program consists of concentrated stock solutions and a computer
    database that will assist conservators in cleaning with
    solvents, solvent gels, and water-borne systems.  The database
    assists the conservator in combining the stock solutions,
    provides information about the solutions and their components,
    and assists in specifying and mixing new solutions.
