Event description

Description

A two-day theory and practical workshop, for 10 delegates, run by Icon accredited book conservator, Caroline Scharfenberg.

The boundaries between book and paper conservation are clearly fluid. Book conservators can benefit from specialist paper conservation knowledge while paper conservators often need to know more about bound material when working with mixed collections. This workshop helps paper conservators gain a basic knowledge about book structures and the typical damage found in book collections. These skills will enable paper conservators to stabilise book collections and to better assess damage and the required repair. Additionally it will help paper conservators to define the boundaries of their own knowledge about bound material and know when best to bring in a professional accredited book conservator.
