Have you ever walked into an old cemetery and seen fallen, broken and leaning gravestones and wondered what you could do about it? This workshop presented by Betty and Carlo Mencucci will introduce you to the proper method of conserving gravestones. You will learn about various stone types as well as different techniques and materials used in the conservation process.
This workshop will provide you with a better understanding of the elements of these historic gems and you will be able to advise people on how to help care for neglected graveyards.
