Book conservator Carolina Veenstra will discuss book supports for exhibitions and will demonstrate how to make a few simple book cradles constructed with museum board. Throughout her four decades of experience as a conservator and artist, she has taught art and bookbinding to a wide range of students, across all kinds of media. Her direct and practical approach is process-oriented and highly customizable. This webinar is part of a 2020-2021 webinar series, Hands On! Practical Conservation for the Collections Professional, presented by RC-WR featuring hands-on demonstrations by professional conservators of basic conservation skills that you can put to use with your own collection. Conservators will also lay down some guidelines that show you how to conduct a conservation condition survey and determine when it’s time to call in a professional.
