"Care and Conservation of Historic Copper, Brass, and Bronze"
3 Week Online Class
Starting Sept. 8, 2014

Do you have historic copper, brass, and bronze and want to know how
to care and preserve it?

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

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

Space is limited so register soon:


If you have any questions feel free to email me any time.
