Conservation Skills for Paper Conservators

 2-Day Workshop

Date: 14th – 15th November.

Venue: National Library of Scotland, 159 Causewayside, Edinburgh.

A theory and practical workshop for 10 delegates run by Icon accredited book conservator Caroline Scharfenberg. This workshop addresses the need for paper conservators to have 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. It will also allow paper conservators to better identify damaged bound material, which will have to be addressed by a professional accredited book conservator.
