Dec. 8: 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m., Art Reference Library
Do you ever wonder how to care for the papers, photographs and other memorabilia that is important to your family? This workshop will help participants learn to care for their family's historical documents. Alison Huftalen, the Museum's head librarian, and TMA archivist Julie McMaster invite participants to bring a few examples of their personal books, papers, photographs and small artifacts. They will discuss how and why materials deteriorate, how to keep the materials from deteriorating further, and how to house them safely. During the hands-on portion of the workshop, you will be shown by Museum staff examples of the proper housing for your precious documents. Information about appraisals, conservation, and resources for storage materials will be shared with the participants.
Registration is $20 for Museum members, $25 for nonmembers.
