This subject builds on the current philosophical and ethical approach and the materials and techniques used in the interventive conservation treatment of cultural and heritage artefacts. Students learn to document the condition and materials of artefacts within their specialisation, and to examine the ethical frameworks for the development of treatment decisions. Students develop and carry out minor treatment programs on selected objects and materials.
This unit may include laboratory or field work in situ as an individual or group project.
Intended learning outcomes
Upon successful completion of this subject students should be able to:
- examine, document and assess the condition and deterioration of different artefacts and materials;
- work safely and efficiently in the conservation laboratory;
- identify and recommend treatment options; and
- undertake conservation treatments and procedures and incorporate these into ethical and sustainable frameworks in cultural materials conservation.
