Object Preservation and Conservation

Object Preservation and Conservation
A series of four workshops has been developed to help improve professional knowledge, skills and practice in the area of conservation. These informative, two-day workshops will take place at the Ursula Surtees Regional Conservation Laboratory, a state-of-the-art facility located at the Okanagan Heritage Museum. The series is designed to help museum professionals gain new conservation and treatment techniques as well as refresh or upgrade their existing skills and knowledge. This is the third workshop in the series and is perfect for museum professionals who work with art and artefacts.  It is also suitable for those with a general interest in conservation.
Andrew Todd will be leading the workshop. Andrew specializes in the conservation of historic objects, works of art, furniture and sculpture. We are very lucky to have Andrew as our presenter as he is highly respected in the profession. Don’t miss the opportunity to learn from such a knowledgeable conservator!
The workshop will cover:
– Preventative conservation
– Storage
– Care and handling
– Cleaning

Participants must register by March 3rd, 2016 as space is limited.

Registration cost ($60) includes lunch and snacks for both days during the workshop.

Dates: March 8th & March 9th

Start time: 9:00 am

End time: 4:30 pm
Funding for this workshop series has been provided by the Federal Department of Canadian Heritage through the Museums Assistance Program.
