Practical Conservation Workshop

Wednesday 16th December. Christ's College, Cambridge

On Wednesday 16th December, we will repeat the immensely popular practical conservation workshop, with Caroline Bendix, this time in the Library at Christ's College Cambridge.

The course will cover the background to book and paper production before moving on to practical training in replacing loose leaves, repairing paper tears, re-attaching spines and repairing damaged corners.

Due to the practical nature of the course, places (45 each) are extremely limited, so please return the booking form to our Treasurer as soon as possible if you would like to attend.

Registration will be at 10.30, and the course will run from 11.00 until around 5.00. Refreshments will be provided upon arrival at 10.30 and in the afternoon around 3.30, but attendees will need to provide their own lunch (Christ's College is very centrally located in Cambridge, with many nearby food outlets).

Please contact us if you have any suggestions for future events
