Who Should Attend
This hands-on workshop is designed for picture framers and museum and gallery professionals interested in conservation mounting techniques for works on paper and photographic materials.
About the Workshop
Participants will learn about various attachment techniques for works on paper with a focus on the use of Japanese paper hinges adhered with wheat starch paste and other non-adhesive attachment methods such as photo corners and strip hinges. We will discuss how to decide on which method to employ and the pros and cons of each attachment method.
Each attendee will go home with samples created during the workshop of each technique discussed, a “hinging kit” with useful materials to use and folder of printed step by step instructions, recipes, vendor information and other useful reference material.
A one hour break and tour of the conservation center is included for interested attendees.
