Paper Conservation Presentation

I gave a talk on paper conservation to the Spital Tongues History Society, Newcastle, on Monday night. It seemed to go down well and judging by some of the nodding heads, I hit the mark with some not only interesting but also useful information about how people can look after their paper objects in the home to help slow their deterioration.

A display of some art items from my own collection helped everyone to identify the common problems and what they look like while bringing materials which are commonly used in paper conservation introduced people to Japanese papers and wheat starch paste.

If you belong to a group or society whose members you think would be interested in learning more about paper conservation or looking after their own paintings, prints or family documents, please do get in touch!
