In this course you will learn about the history and technology of cooper alloy objects, how to identify conservation problems, how to properly handle, store, exhibit, and how to safely clean and preserve historic cooper, brass, and bronze. We will emphasize what you can do and when you need a conservator.
The course runs for three weeks with one section each week: History and Technology of Copper Alloys, Condition and Treatment, Storage and Care. It is structured so you can do the course from home or from work. We'll have email discussions about each week's readings and resource materials, there will one practical assignment: to write a condition report, clean an iron object, or write a short conservation plan for your copper alloy collection.« Back to webinars
