This talk will cover basic uses of thangkas, their provenance and
styles and how to make them. Concentrating at the on the
preservation and conservation of thangkas as they relate to display
and storage in museums. All of the talk will be from work carried
out while teaching thangkas conservation workshops in Nepal and
Tibet and how this helped make decisions for the display, storage
and care of thangkas that are now housed in the different museum's
collections I have worked with.
