Conservation workshop, led by Caroline Bendix at Norwich Cathedral Library
23 September 2019, 10.30am (starting with coffee) to 4.15pm, cost £35
A day on protective enclosures and supports, to include making a phase-box, a Melinex
wrapper and a bookshoe, along with discussion on how to select the right protective
enclosure and what to look for in the object to help you make that choice. Please bring 2-3 octavo examples for which you will make things (we can supply details of the type of damage the books should have).
Coffee and tea will be provided, but please be prepared to provide your own lunch (the library is directly opposite the Cathedral Refectory, and there are plenty of other opportunities for lunch within a short walk). The Cathedral is only 10 minutes’ walk from Norwich railway station; car parking is limited so must be booked in advance.
Numbers for the workshop are strictly limited to 16, so book soon to secure your place.
