Join the BCMA and the Canadian Conservation Institute for this three-part workshop series that provides a general overview of metal objects, such as public art and architecture, that are usually found outdoors. Included is information about the properties of metals and how to identify them, as well as a discussion of common causes of degradation, corrosion products, and outdoor environments that cause corrosion.

Upon completion of this series, participants will be able to

  • identify a wide variety of metals used in outdoor applications,
  • identify corrosion problems associated with metals,
  • use this knowledge to create basic condition reports and
  • provide recommendations for the basic care of common metals found outdoors.

This workshop is offered in partnership with the Alberta Museums Association. 

Registration is $20 per person.
