hello, I just want to know the conservation methods that you use.

For those in the Washington DC area check out the Washington Conservation Guild's (WCG) website:

http://cool.conservation-us.org/wcg/

If you are interested in learning more about the art conservation field and how to possibly become a conservator this is an affordable way to do so.  This group has monthly meetings with invited speakers so it's a great way for young people to network with professionals in the area.

I serve as the WCG Fellow/Intern/Volunteer coordinator and organize tours of conservation labs as well as happy hour events during the Sept-May calendar year.  Our next tour will be at the conservation department of the National Holocaust Memorial Museum so feel free to email k-deghetaldi@nga.gov if you want to learn more.
