Join Emily Derse, a paper conservator in private practice in the Seattle area, to discuss conservation hinging for works of art on paper.
Over decades of private practice and museum training, Emily has come across countless hinging disasters that could have been avoided with some basic conservation knowledge and careful hand skills. In this session, Emily will discuss the perils of adding adhesives to paper supports and we will learn about a few elegant hinge-free mounting solutions to have in your back pocket for storage, transport, and display.
This webinar is part of a 2020-2021 webinar series, Hands On! Practical Conservation for the Collections Professional, presented by RC-WR featuring hands-on demonstrations by professional conservators of basic conservation skills that you can put to use with your own collection. Conservators will also lay down some guidelines that show you how to conduct a conservation condition survey and determine when it's time to call in a professional.
