Event description
A Lake Mac GLAM Workshop- This talk will help you to be your own conservator of family documents and photos.

About this event

Care of family documents and photos is a broad-based talk that covers the care of paper based items.

In particular the most fragile items (degrees, watercolours, photos and old letters) will all need slightly different environments in display framing and storage. Most families have a large number of things they care about and most of it doesn’t need a conservator.

This talk will help you to be your own conservator carrying out the most basic cleans and re-housing. Part of this presentation will discuss soot and smoke damaged items and cleaning.

The knowledge gained will be invaluable for caring for your own collections. The talk will be delivered by Victoria Pearce- Director of Endangered Heritage.

Presenter Information: Victoria Pearce is the Senior Textiles conservator from Endangered Heritage p/l and has worked for the better part of the last two decades on international, national and private collections.

Morning Tea/Afternoon tea included
