"Care and Conservation of Historic Silver"
3 Week Online Class
Starting on July 28, 2014


Do you have historic silver and want to know how to care and
preserve it?

In this course you will learn about the history and technology of
silver, how to identify conservation problems, how to properly
handle, store, and exhibit silver, and how to safely clean and
preserve historic silver.  We will emphasize what you can do and
when you need a conservator.

The course runs for three weeks with one section each week: History
and Technology, Condition and Treatment, Storage and Care.  It is
structured so you can do the course from home or from work.  We'll
have email discussions about each week's readings and resource
materials, there will one practical assignment: to write a condition
report, clean a silver object, or write a short conservation plan
for your silver collection.

This online class will give you the tools to understand, clean, and
preserve historic iron.

Space is limited so register soon.


If you have any questions feel free to email me.
