Instructor: Richard Wolbers

The University of Amsterdam organizes from 9-13 December 2013 a
workshop Cleaning. This is given by Richard Wolbers. This intensive
course aimed at conservators, restorers and conservation scientists
interested in new cleaning methods for fine arts surfaces, textiles
and paper. The purpose of this workshop is to acquaint participants
with the formulation of preparations for problems related with both
surface cleaning and to coating and re-/over-painting removal.
Chemical theory and case studies illustrating the cleaning
techniques will be presented during morning lecture sessions.
Afternoon practical and discussion sessions will follow. Practice
pieces will be provided to experiment with and participants are
invited to bring their own samples or problematic items to work out
cleaning systems.

The workshop lasts five days and is given in one of the locations of
the University of Amsterdam. The participation fee is 1050 euros.
