Conservation Workshop: Preserve your own passion projects!

Carmen Li - U of A Museums

Art, vintage clothing, rare books... People amass collections of all sorts of objects, and their value is often both sentimental and monetary. How do you protect these collections and preserve their value?

Join University of Alberta Museums conservator Carmen Li and guest Alison Freake, conservator at the Provincial Archives of Alberta, for an informative two-hour workshop aimed at collectors, both rookies and veterans. Li and Freake will discuss some common risks that threaten the long-term preservation of your personal collections and demonstrate basic preventive measures you can take to conserve your own passion projects.

Participants will be encouraged to provide information regarding their collections in advance of the workshop. If appropriate, participants may be invited to bring objects.

Space is limited so register today for this rare opportunity to learn how to preserve your collection from the experts! Free material samples and catalogues for participants provided by Carr McClean and Gaylord.

Email or call 780.492.5834 to register.


This talk is presented in conjunction with the U of A Museums exhibition Passion Project, celebrating the passions of collectors and artists who have donated works of art to the University of Alberta Art Collection.
