Metallography workshop
University of Amsterdam
1-4 June 2015

The University of Amsterdam organizes from 1-4 June 2015 a workshop
Metallography.  This is given by Dr. Carla Martini.  This intensive
course aimed at restorers, conservation scientists and related
professionals practicing within the field.

Metallography is the study of metal microstructure using microscopy
techniques.  Why study microstructures?  Because microstructure is
the language of metals, it can tell us about the changes they
undergo during their lifetime.  The aim of this course is to provide
basic knowledge of metallography for metals encountered in the field
of cultural heritage.  The main metallurgical features related to
microstructure generation will be discussed, enabling the
participants to understand how metal microstructure is influenced by
solidification and the manufacturing processes carried out in
pre-modern technological conditions.  Lectures will be followed by
practical activities (carried out each day in the afternoon), to
ensure participants become familiar with the main metallographic
preparation techniques in the field of cultural heritage
diagnostics.  Upon completing of the course, the participants will
be able to understand which questions can (and can not) be answered
by metallographic investigations on cultural heritage metals, as
well as how to interpret such answers.

The workshop lasts four days and is given in the Ateliergebouw, one
of the locations of the University of Amsterdam.  The participation
fee is 625 euros.
