"New Methods of Cleaning Textiles"
with Richard Wolbers
Berlin, Germany
6-8 June 2013

The Textile Conservation Workshop of the Museum fuer Islamische
Kunst - Staatliche Museen zu Berlin, invites Richard Wolbers for a
3-day intensive course aimed at textiles conservators interested in
new cleaning methods for textiles.

During the workshop, participants will be presented with a general
survey of the theoretical principles needed to evaluate, as well as
formulate, for themselves, tailored aqueous and emulsion based
cleaning systems for wet-cleaning textiles. The goal of the workshop
will be to better empower the participants to formulate tailored
aqueous and emulsion preparations for general wet cleaning problems
(soil removal) as well as common 'spot' or local stain reduction.
Common challenges/limitations in wet cleaning as adhesive removal,
dye bleeding, etc. will be covered in this workshop.

The course will be 'front loaded' with theory for the first day and
a half, and the final day and a half will be devoted entirely to
'hands-on' practical sessions aimed at mixing and applying solutions
or preparations made by the participants.

Cost: 450,- Euros
Deadline for application: March 3 2013

The workshop is limited to 15 participants
