Paper Repair With Pre-coated Repair Materials

There are still spaces available! Here is a blog post from the Metropolitan Museum of Art about this workshop, which Sarah taught there in 2014:

The New England Guild of Bookworkers, in collaboration with the Dartmouth College Library Preservation Services, presents the conservation workshop Adhesive Pre-coated Repair Materials.

Conservator Sarah Reidell will teach this two-day conservation workshop on preparing and using pre-coated repair materials for library and archival conservation. Workshop includes short lecture presentations; an overview of selection criteria; instructor-led demonstrations; discovery exercises; and group discussion to share experimental results and evaluate findings. Attendees collaborate closely to share working methods and tips while creating comparative samples on surrogate objects (their own or provided by instructor).

Location: Dartmouth College Library, Hanover, NH
Dates: March 27 and 28, 2015 (Friday and Saturday), 9am-4pm
Price: $250 GBW members; $300 non-members
