Weaving Voices – Paper & Paste

March 16 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Join conservator Shirley Jones to unwrap the mysteries of paper conservation

Shirley will help us to unwrap the mysteries of paper conversation; paper & paste and the tools of her trade .

The format will be a 1hr talk in the Bobbin Room followed by an opportunity to visit the Archive yourself as part of the event.

This is an informal talk with a limited number of attendees, so you will be given plenty of chance to ask Shirley questions and get up close with some mucky paper!

We strive to be as accessible and inclusive as possible, and thanks to National Lottery Heritage Funding, not only are all tickets subsidised, but also, this event will be BSL interpreted as well as being able to offer a limited number of free Accessibility & Inclusivity tickets to Deaf and disabled customers, and also to students.
