Workshop offered by the Vermont Historical Society: Learn how to preserve large paper objects
Barre, VT - On Saturday, January 11, 2014, at the Vermont History Center in Barre, Conservator Carolyn Frisa will present a workshop about how to preserve large-format works on paper. If you, your local historical society, library, or town own large paper objects, such as architectural plans, maps, posters, documents, photographs and even wallpaper, this workshop will guide you on how to properly care for them. The workshop is from 10:00 am to 12:30 pm.
"These large and often unwieldy objects present special preservation challenges, especially for storage, handling and display," said Carolyn Frisa. "We will discuss special degradation factors and storage recommendations, as well as handling, display and storage guidelines for these materials." Workshop attendees will also have the opportunity to see inexpensive storage solutions from Carolyn's collection and take a tour of some of the oversized storage at the Vermont Historical Society.
This workshop is free for Vermont Historical Society members and VHS institutional members, and $15 for non-members. Registration is required and space is limited. The snow date is Saturday, February 8.
