"Adhesives, Consolidants and Coatings"
University of Amsterdam
1-4 April 2014

This is given by Velson Horie.  Restorers use materials on their
objects all the time.  Why do you use the materials you use? What
criteria do you use in making those choices? Is the choice based on
evidence, familiarity, or custom and practice? This masterclass
examines the existing evidence, develops practical experience with
materials' properties, and tests custom and practice.  The course is
evenly split between practical sessions working with materials and
the theoretical background needed to understand their properties.
The role and merits of both high technology studies and
investigations in a conservation studio are investigated.
Participants can bring and share their individual problems as object
lessons to be examined by the group, always a productive process.

The workshop lasts four days and is given in one of the locations of
the University of Amsterdam: the Ateliergebouw.  The participation
fee is 890 euros.
