Spring Workshop: Albums of Ephemera with Elizabeth Chambers

 

The archiving of vintage scrapbooks and photo albums challenges museums and families alike.  How to care for discreet collections of ephemeral, and not necessarily compatible, materials that have been stuck together in an album? Grandma’s cherished scrapbook—its yellowed pages filled with family history such as old letters, announcements/invitations, faded photographs, and/or torn newspaper clippings—represents both a treasure-trove and conservation nightmare!

 

Join Conservator Elizabeth Chambers and discover how best to preserve individual album components, while respecting the integrity of the whole.

 

Workshop Details:

During the workshop, Elizabeth will discuss the proper handling, care, documentation, and storage of scrapbooks and photo albums.  Speaking to specific examples brought in by participants, Elizabeth will explore the practical and ethical issues surrounding the care of vintage albums.

 

Feel free to bring a piece from your collection to use

 as your specimen of the day as these concrete examples

  can illustrate some of the dilemmas and foster stimulating discussions.
