Justin Lemons and Jaimi Parker, Preservation Technician and Exhibits Coordinator for UNT Special Collections will teach participants how to create basic exhibit furniture and how to properly mat and frame various types of materials for display. This hands-on workshop will allow participants to practice measuring and cutting mats for frames, and will teach them how to create book cradles from archival corrugated board. Included in this workshop will be an overview of framing techniques, best practices for mounting various types of materials, and time for participants to ask about their specific needs in the areas of exhibiting, mounting, and (remove and) framing, and preservation issues that go along with exhibiting archival materials.
NOTE: This workshop is not at the conference hotel. Location is: University of North Texas, Preservation Lab located at the Library Annex (941 Precision Drive, Denton, TX 76207).
