Advanced Matting for Exhibition & Decorative Mounts

This course is designed as a hands-on experience focusing on matting for exhibition and loans. Techniques that will be taught are matting and hinging of problematic and challenging print objects (e.g., vellum, copper plates, and fragile surfaces). All participants will leave the course with a set of models that incorporate all techniques and materials covered in the class. Go online at www.campbellcenter.org for more details. Experience with basic matting techniques is required.
Book Collections: Maintenance and Care
October 15 -18
This class is a hands-on experience for those responsible for the care, maintenance, and repair of circulating book collections. The class is particularly relevant to those professionals seeking an in-house option to outsourcing some repair and enclosure treatments to a commercial bindery. Treatments will include hinge tightening, flat paper mending, tip-ins,spine replacement, recasing, and new casing. The types of protective enclosures include pockets, custom and manufactured binders, wrapper-type enclosures, and cloth covered clamshell boxes. For more course info go to www.campbellcenter.org.
