Bone Cleaning Basics

Upcoming: This class will once again be part of the annual Curious Gallery PDX, a weekend event full of workshops, art, vendors, and curiosities. It will be held the weekend of January 7-8, 2017, and I will update the specific date and time of my class as I receive it.

This class is a quick and dirty overview of bone cleaning. I touch on the three most commonly used methods – cleaning via nature, maceration and dermestid beetles – and give you a realistic idea of what each method can achieve and what kind of extra processing is necessary to get an immaculately white bone you can be proud of. This class is appropriate for all levels, and typically takes 1 1/2 – 2 hours (this includes a Q&A period). This lecture-based class is supported with a PowerPoint presentation and real bone examples, and is appropriate for large groups. I typically offer this class once a year in Portland, at an event open to the public. I will post dates when I have them.
