A workshop organised by the Canterbury Disaster Salvage Team will be taking place at Christchurch Art Gallery in mid June-ish on best practise in the event of a disaster (as identified by the hands on workshop we had last year). It will be dealing with preventive issues, good storage, and display. We are hoping to get as many areas covered as possible.
Flyer to follow with finalised dates and other information in the near future.
An Introduction to Caring for Victorian Photographs
Thursday 19 – Friday 20 November 2015, 10:00 am to 3:00 pm
$15 per person – to cover cost of materials
Bring your own lunch or buy at the Museum Cafe
Often the care of photographs is neglected due to a lack of knowledge about their proper care and storage. This seminar aims to address this by providing a basic overview of the most common photographic processes for nineteenth century images.
The seminar will be aimed at, but not limited to, small institutions with volunteer staff, or newcomers to the archival field, that have photographic collections as part of a wider archival collection. Some practical exercises will be included; specific conservation issues will not be covered.
Please think about any problems or issues you have, or might want to talk about and, if possible, bring along an example to look at. There’s no guarantee you will get definitive answers on the day but your hosts will try to find answers and get back to you.
Please contact Joanna Szczepanski if you have any further questions. email@example.com or 03 366 9429 ext 895
