Art School tutors speak at cultural heritage webinar

Head of Conservation, Dr Marina Sokhan, and Art Histories Tutor, Dr Michael Paraskos, are speaking at a webinar organised by Imperial College London as part of its ‘Science & Engineering Research for Cultural Heritage’ series.

Entitled ‘Laser Cleaning in Conservation / Historic Artefacts: when do you want it?’, the webinar will feature two twenty minute presentations followed by a Q&A session, with audience members invited to submit questions in advance.

Dr Marina Sokhan will host the first presentation, discussing the use of lasers to clean historic buildings and sculpture during conservation treatment. The second presentation, led by Dr Michael Paraskos, will explore how the cleaning of artefacts can obscure the real history and original nature of those buildings and sculpture.

The free webinar takes place on Thursday 13 May at 2pm. To book your place and pre-register a question, click here.

Dr Marina Sokhan is the Head of the Art School’s renowned Conservation Department, which specialises in the conservation of Stone, Wood & Decorative Surfaces, and Books & Paper. Dr Michael Paraskos lectures on the history of British architecture on the Art School’s Historic Carving and Conservation courses.
