Workshops are regularly offered on historical treatment methods and current practices for example related to the lining of paintings, surface cleaning and varnish removal from painted surfaces, or re-joining of panel paintings. Some of these workshops are at times organised in collaboration with Restauratoren Nederland in order to offer further training to professionals in the field.
SRAL further organises a variety of symposia and conferences in Maastricht. In general these are open to conservators, art-curators and other heritage professionals. Because of the international character, the symposia etc. are often held in English. In some cases, these workshops relate to the curriculum of the Conservation and Restoration training course of the University of Amsterdam.
