3 Week Online Class

Do you have historic iron and want to know how to care and preserve

In this course you will learn about the history and technology of
iron, how to identify conservation problems, how to properly handle,
store, and exhibit iron, and how to safely clean and preserve
historic iron.  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 an iron object, or write a short conservation plan for
your iron collection.

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

Space is limited so register soon.
