This practical course, to be held at The Corning Museum of Glass, NY, USA covers the principles and practice of historical and archaeological glass cleaning, care, conservation and restoration. It is a rare chance to learn from the Master in the Master’s house!! The course will be held in the laboratory surrounded by the magnificent Corning glass collection.
Discussions centre on aspects of deterioration, restoration methods and proper conditions for storage and display.Practical sessions focus on cleaning, reconstruction, adhesion and gap filling and the use of different techniques and materials.
The course is aimed at practising glass and other conservators and requires a background knowledge in conservation.
