Event Details

TRAINER: Lorraine Finch ACR, Freelance Conservator

Please arrive after 10am for a 10.30 start. Refreshments will be provided on arrival but please bring your own lunch 

Photographs are fragile, vulnerable yet complex objects. All too often they are ignored in collections or treated like paper items. Neither of these is the recommended approach. During this practical workshop you will discover why photographs need to be cared for differently from paper. We will examine how to identify photographic processes and why this is important. You will be able to handle 150 years’ worth of photographic history and try identifying processes for yourself. We will examine the preservation of photographic material covering all ten agents of deterioration and what steps you can take to mitigate them. You will have the opportunity to make your own four flap enclosures.
