1/2 Day Handling Objects Workshop

As keepers of collections we handle heritage objects everyday, but it is important to understand the correct methods for handling in order to reduce the risk of damage. This half day session will discuss the various handling scenarios within organizations – rehousing, storage, cataloguing, exhibition installation, transport - and what options are available to correctly handle the variety of sensitive materials – such as photographs, oversize fragile items like maps and plans, oversize heavy items, textiles, gilded works.
