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 https://www.historicenvironment.scot/about-us/what-we-do/conservation/conferences-and-events/monuments-in-monuments-2019/. We are also looking forward to the forthcoming publication following this conference.
