Injection Grouts for the Conservation of Architectural Surfaces
The Getty Conservation Institute is hosting a two-day workshop on injection grouts for the conservation of architectural surfaces. The workshop will provide an overview of the characteristics, properties, and uses of injection grouts for the conservation of architectural surfaces, including plasters, wall paintings, and mosaics focusing on desirable properties and parameters for their use in conservation.
Topics to be covered include:
- basic components of grouts
- laboratory testing
- selection of grouts
- practical application of tests in the field
Lectures and laboratory components, including demonstrations and practical exercises, will be led by scientists and conservators associated with the GCI Grouts Research and Evaluation Project: Beril Bicer-Simsir, GCI assistant scientist; David Carson, GCI laboratory manager; and Leslie Rainer, conservator and GCI senior project specialist.
The workshop will be held at the Getty Center in Los Angeles in the Building Materials Laboratory of the Getty Conservation Institute. Due to considerations of space and lab safety the workshop will be limited to twelve participants. The deadline for submittal of the workshop application is Wednesday, April 21, 2010.
The cost of the workshop is $75. This covers course materials, coffee, lunch, and parking for both days. Participants are responsible for their accommodations and ground transportation.
