Date: Wednesday, November 27, 2013
The Australian Institute for the Conservation of Cultural Material
invites registrations to attend a 4-day workshop on the conservation
of fluid-preserved biological specimens to be run at Melbourne
Museum in late February and early March 2014.

The course will be led by Simon Moore, a conservator of natural
science collections, who has conducted the course in the United
Kingdom and Europe since 2004 and who has specialised in fluid
preservation technology since 1970.  The four-day course will cover
all aspects of fluid preservation and conservation of
fluid-preserved specimens, including glass technology (cutting,
drilling, grinding), jar sealing and fluid preparation, specimen
mounting and repair, re-hydration and dealing with problems such as
yellowing fluids and pH.  The course comprises some PowerPoint
presentations with a large practical component.  For an example of
workshop content, please refer to Simon Moore's previous course
structure at

managers and other professionals responsible for the care and
preservation of natural history collections.

Fees for the workshop are AUD $1400 (including GST) which will cover
all materials, notes and catering.
