Historic Congressional Cemetery, Washington, DC
Historic Congressional Cemetery, partnering with the D.C. Metro Chapter of the Association for Gravestone Studies, will be hosting Operation Conservation, a workshop to provide educational outreach for those in our area who are interested in cemetery conservation. The workshop, open to a limited number of attendees, will provide hands-on experience with cleaning, resetting tablets, disassembling and reconstructing multi-piece monuments, joining broken headstone fragments, pros and cons of drilling, when to use consolidation, and resetting stones without heavy equipment.
Registration fee: $180 for both days of the workshop and a boxed lunch for each day.
