"Minimal Intervention on Limp Vellum Archival Bindings: Practical
    ideas for the preservation of limp vellum bindings: Functional
    sewn-on protective paper covers"
London Metropolitan Archives, London
12-13 June 2014

Lecturer: Lara Speroni, private conservator
Language: English
Participants: Maximum 12 people
Course fee: UKP 200

Course Content: Two-day workshop will look at the execution and
adaptation of sewn-on book covers that are quick and simple to make
but effective and non-intrusive.  The sewing structures and covers
designs can be adopted as a one-off conservation intervention or as
a part of a large collection's preservation plan.

Participants will have the opportunity to make several conservation
structures and discuss their potential use or possible modifications
with fellow conservators
