Preserving Your Treasures: Silver Cleaning Workshop

October 15, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join Melissa de Bie, History Colorado’s Director of Collections Management & Registration, for a hands-on workshop on cleaning silver. Participants will learn basic facts about silver, causes of deterioration, and cleaning and preservation strategies. Guests will also learn what not to do and who/when to call for help. A portion of the workshop will be spent working with household supplies to practice silver-cleaning techniques.

All materials, supplies, and handouts will be provided. Participants are encouraged to bring one small piece of tarnished silver to clean. (Results are not guaranteed based on such things as level of tarnish, silver quality, etc.)
