Encapsulation is a simple and cost effective way to protect works on paper from wear and tear due to handling. It can also help keep fragile pieces together and make family documents accessible. This workshop will teach participants how to encapsulate their own paper objects safely. Proper materials, environment and handling methods will be discussed. The end result will be a sample set of various encapsulation techniques for future reference. Materials list will be provided upon registration.
