*Registration is now open for a half-day workshop this November*:*"Being
Resourceful: DIY supports & enclosures"*
Are you a Do-It-Yourselfer at home? Want to bring some of that
resourcefulness to your library or archive? Learn from a preservation
professional about some tricks of the trade.
“Being Resourceful: DIY Supports & Enclosures” will discuss basic tools,
tips and techniques on how to create many of the supports and enclosures
needed in your repository and save your organization money on buying off
the shelf items. You’ll learn what tools you’ll need in order to create a
variety of supports and enclosures and gain some tips on how to pull those
together from non-traditional library sources. Topics covered will include
making custom wrappers and enclosures, sewing book cushions, covering
bricks, measuring sticks, making weighted cubes & snake weights, sewing
encapsulation and more. You will also craft a simple enclosure that can be
adapted to a range of sizes and materials.
The half day workshop will be taught by Erica H. Saladino, a bookbinder and
conservation technician for the Brown University Libraries. With a
background in the bookarts that began at the Rhode Island School of Design,
she currently works with both circulating collections and rare books
performing book repair and creating custom housing for oddly-shaped objects.
Participants are encouraged to bring their own bone folders and x-acto
knives. Light refreshments will be provided.
