Lecture:Care and Conservation of Decorative Metal Objects
September 5, 2014 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm£2.50 – £5
Highly decorative metal objects are complicated in their manufacture and form. Often comprising of multiple metals and a range of surface decorations, the cleaning of such objects has to be undertaken with care.
This talk will look at the common materials and manufacturing processes of decorative metal objects and how this affects their conservation. We will explore a range of conservation cleaning techniques, how the treatments are adapted to match the specifics of an object and how best to clean decorative metals in the home.
The lecture is hosted by Gabrielle Flexer, Conservator from Wiltshire & Swindon History Centre
