The Institute for Conservation Textile Group is planning to hold a
Back to Basics Chemistry course entitled 'Wet cleaning: the
appliance of science'.  The one day workshop will be lead by Dr
Anita Quye, Lecturer in Conservation Science, Centre for Textile
Conservation and Technical Art History, University of Glasgow.

The process of cleaning with aqueous solutions and solvents in
textile conservation involves pH, buffers, solubility and
detergency.  In this one day CPD refresher session, delegates will
cover the important underpinning scientific concepts about what is
happening in wet cleaning and why which help to inform and support
treatment decisions.

The workshop will take place at the British Museum, London at the
Orsman Road site on Thursday 27 June, 2013.  There are only several
spaces left
