Pattern-taking, a hands-on approach for garments from historical collections
This training course will develop the latest progress concerning the mounting and preservation framers of artworks on paper, in particular the fastening with hinges using methylcellulose, not bioactive, designed to minimize the pressures on the artwork while improving the resistance of the assembly, both for light and heavier objects (cardboard).
These three days will also allow participants to study support systems without hinges, made with folded papers, sheets and felts of polyester, extensions which provide a stable support but without confinement for solid panels or bowls, these installations offering the best support for all types of paper objects.
The various materials such as papers, plastics, metals, glasses and combinations of these materials will be detailed as well as their use to improve the preservation of objects. New materials, such as Fosshape, Stinger Board and 2mm reflective Mylar will be presented, as well as others in development, such as transparent microfiber paper.
