Paste paper in conservation
centro del bel libro ascona
9-13 June 2008

Historical paste paper techniques as needed for adequate infills and
bindings have not changed fundamentally since the seventeenth
century. A multitude of tools, paints, base papers and starches is
used, providing together with the maker's technical skills the
almost indefinite diversity of paste paper. This course will help
participants to understand the fascinating processes, "read" the
originals and produce the required papers. Insights into history,
chemistry and surfaces are given. Participants are invited to bring
damaged objects and/or their own tools and materials.
