In 2012 Richard Wolbers was back in Europe travelling for 6 weeks to several countries, UK, France as well as the Netherlands where he is giving right now his famous lectures on ‘New Methods of Cleaning (painted) Surfaces. The restorers association Restauratoren Nederland (RN) invited him to come to the Netherlands. Richard is famous for both his content and way of teaching. That’s not only my point of view, as I’m very fond of his lectures… but speaking to an English chemist teacher/paper restorer that specially came over for the theoretical part, I understood that Richards teaching methods are famous too. The Englishman was not the only foreigner, as the Danish Statens Museum for Kunst sends her restorer too.

The theoretical part on new-methods-for-cleaning-by-richard-wolbers was given at the Reinwardt Akademie in Amsterdam. Where they are serving good meals and coffees, the forthcoming 3 days we shall be hosted by RCE Rijswijk. For me it’s the third time and this time an honour to assist him in the lab and a great pleasure. One of the participants writes a report to be published in RN’s magazine Aux Courant….To be continued on new-methods-for-cleaning-by-richard-wolbers.
