The Campbell Center for Historic Preservation Studies is hosting the

14-16, 2012.

The class will be offered on the campus of Beloit College, Beloit
Wisconsin.  The tuition is $875 and includes lodging and most meals.
Partial scholarships may be available.  The workshop is being taught
by Michele Greenan, Director of Archaeology at the Indiana State
Museum, and Gaby Kienitz, Head Conservator at the Indiana State
Museum.  This hands-on workshop focuses on the care and potential
treatment of low-fired ceramic vessels and vessel portions. Topics
include 'best practice' solutions in the world of conservation; the
process of assessing material, preparing solutions, consolidating,
and adhering low-fired ceramic shards; and releasing joins and
making plaster fill.  For more information or to register for the
class go to
