'HOUSING COLLECTIONS', PRESENTED BY DEE PSAILA
Will give you the skills to be able to "wrap" some of your most precious collection items!
During this hands-on one day session, you will learn how to make spacers, four flaps, phase boxes, clamshell boxes, and two-part boxes, all assembled in a handy kit that you can take away with you and apply in your own archives.
Not only is this a great learning experience, it is an excellent opportunity to help better your collection and maximize you collection storage space.
As this is a hands-on activity, participants are asked to BRING THEIR OWN HEAVY DUTY RETRACTABLE BLADE, such as an Olfa, with snap off blades- no scalpels, please. Also PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN pencil, bone folder, and a ruler- at least 18" long.
Participants have a choice of attending on Friday 14 December OR Saturday 15 December 2012 (max. 15 participants each day)
Location: Trinity College

Lunch can be purchased nearby at Hart House, or at Trinity.
