Identification and Preservation of Prints (Bryn Mawr, PA)

Presented by: CCAHA

Prints of various time periods, from fine art to more common ephemera, are often prevalent in collections.  The preservation of prints must consider the intricacies of media, the qualities of paper supports, and the interaction between the two.  This workshop will provide an overview of the history of printmaking and printmaking techniques.  In hands-on sessions, participants will learn how to identify prints, recognize common condition problems, and properly handle and house print collections.

Location: Bryn Mawr College Special Collections

Speaker: Samantha Sheesley, Paper Conservator, CCAHA
