Shipwreck artefacts require specialist care and have protective legislation to preserve them for posterity. Learn about ethical issues, legal requirements and preventative conservation methods for shipwreck items in your museum’s collection.

Presented by Peta Knott, Maritime Archaeologist, this workshop will also demonstrate collection management and object handling skills using maritime heritage examples to illustrate best practice.

Thanks to funding from the Maritime Museums of Australia Project Support Scheme (MMAPSS), Museums Australia (Victoria) are able to offer two free workshops in March, please book into whichever location is most convenient for you. Bookings essential.
