We learned the importance of handling and caring for family treasures from Holly Witchey, Director of Education and Outreach for ICA - Art Conservation in Cleveland, OH in her JGSC August program. Delve deeper as you learn to care for silver.
This is the time of year (and for some of us the only time of year) when family silver makes an appearance on the festive table.
For years, you may have been using your great-grandmother's secret recipe or an over-the-counter silver polish to take the tarnish away. Ever wonder how conservators polish silver?
Come spend an entertaining and educational hour with Claire Curran, ICA's Associate Object Conservator as she demonstrates the fine art of silver polishing, and discusses everything you need to know about cleaning and caring for your silver and silver plate.
We promise you'll never look at tarnish the same way again.
