International Course on Stone Conservation (SC)

This twelve-week course is a partnership between ICCROM and the Getty Conservation Institute.  The primary goal is to improve the practice of stone conservation by providing participants with an understanding of the decay and deterioration of stone, disseminating effective conservation methodologies, and ensuring a practical understanding of appropriate repair methods and long-term management strategies. Participants discuss the fundamental theories of conservation, and consider how advances in technology and research have influenced practical approaches as they pertain to all phases of stone conservation.
