Conferences and Working Partnerships

We have been delighted to visit a number of analytical facilities recently including the British Museum and the Canadian Conservation Institute (CCI). At the conservation department at the British Museum it was very useful to discuss our mutual interest in the use of Lasers.  Machines are being developed and improved and we expect to see greater use of them in the future for stone, plaster and painting conservation.  If anyone is in Scotland in early September Sabina will be discussing the challenges in the cleaning the alabaster archivolt at St Mary’s Tutbury at the Monuments in Monuments Conference in Stirling, details We are also looking forward to the forthcoming publication following this conference.

We have also started working with the CCI on a project in Canada we commenced at the start of the year. The chance to work internationally and collaborate with colleagues and exchange working practices is very exciting and enhances not only our understanding of conservation practices but the nature of materials used in building conservation around the world. Although one must remember terminology can vary!
