This two-hour workshop, taught by Book and Paper Conservator, Ashleigh Schieszer, with assistance from Paper Conservator, Cher Schneider, and Conservation Technician, Catarina Figueirinhas, will focus on utilizing mat board mounting options for long-term storage as well as display.  Participants will create three sample matting systems to mount materials with different long-term storage needs, using non-adhesive mounting techniques.  An introduction to mounting techniques with hinges and wheat starch paste will also be provided as time permits.

Materials and tools will be provided free of cost.

Registration is required. Space is limited to 15 participants. Open to all OPC members on a first-come first-served basis.
