Event description: 

This two-day workshop will look at the execution and adaptation of sewn-on book covers that are quick and simple to make but effective and non-intrusive. The sewing structures and covers designs can be adopted as a one-off conservation intervention or as a part of a large collection's preservation plan.
Participants will have the opportunity to make three to four conservation structures and discuss their potential use or possible modifications with fellow conservators.

Lecturer: Lara Speroni, private conservator
Language: English
