San Francisco Workshops

Below is some information  on two workshops I will be instructing in
San Francisco this Fall, and again in January 2007. These programs
are being directed to small museums and historical societies without
in-house conservation staff; and those who rely on collections
managers and registrars with limited experience in applied
conservation practices.

Program A
Preventative Conservation of Textiles and Historic Objects;
Collections Care, Handling, and Storage Techniques

    This seminar will focus on the basic principles of collections
    maintenance, including environmental monitoring, integrated pest
    management, equipment, and the quality of archival materials and
    supplies used for custom housing.

    11am-4pm   Saturday, October 21, 2006

Program B
Mount Preparation and Object Support;
Custom Designed Display Techniques for Exhibiting Costume, Textiles,
and Historic Object Ephemera

    This session will be a hands-on technical studio lab.  Custom
    support and mounts will be designed and fabricated for the
    rolling, housing, hanging, and presentation of five example
    textiles and objects.

    11am-4pm  Saturday, November 4, 2006

(Programs A and B:  $325)

Enrollment is limited to ten persons per session.  Registration must
be received by October 10, 2006.

These programs will be presented again this Winter, on January
20-21, 2007
