Photo Preservation Workshop

Saturday, March 3, 2018

Led by Montpelier’s Collections Manager Joseph Sherren, this workshop will introduce you to some of the techniques used by conservators to care for and store photographic images. The workshop will consist of an overview of the photographic process and discussion on identifying types of photographs.

We will discuss environmental agents that degrade photograph media, basic techniques to slow them down, and basic maintenance of your photographs. You will learn to recognize and understand the needs of photographic materials, the basics of storage, conservation, and preservation to keep your family’s photographs in excellent condition for years to come.

Ages: 18 and older
