Join Kyla Ubbink, book and paper conservator, for a 3 hour workshop on simple and practical archival preservation techniques to stop the deterioration of your family’s historic documents, letters, photographs, albums, clippings, books, memorabilia and scrapbooks. Acquire safe handling techniques, explore digitization options, and gain knowledge in regular maintenance and basic treatments that you can apply at home. Kyla will give demonstrations in cleaning books and paper, removing clips and staples, separating photographs from ‘sticky’ album pages, and how to make simple acid-free folders with the opportunity to try these techniques. Get the skills needed to start saving your family archives now!
