From: Consuela Metzger <chelame<-at->
Date: Monday, March 26, 2012
Introduction to book structures for conservators
Monday-Thursday, July 19 - August 17, 2012
(no class July 4, 2012)
9am - 4pm Register
Instructor: Chela Metzger

This class will have a few open slots. It is part of the Mellon
Funded enhancements for the education of Library and Archives
Conservators taking place at Winterthur/University of Delaware
Program in Art Conservation, in collaboration with Simmons School of
Library and Information Science and the North Bennet Street School.


This five-week class meets Monday - Thursday each week. Field trips
are scheduled for some Fridays, otherwise Fridays are considered
work days/open studio. The course is designed to further basic
bookbinding bench skills and to explore historic book structures in
the context of the conservation of books as historic artifacts.
Readings, research on book structures and bookbinding history, and
creating models of historic structures are the basis of the course.
Class presentations, short essays and online publishing are
required. The course is for students who are seriously interested in
exploring conservation of books as cultural heritage, and could be
used to help develop a portfolio for further work in
library/archives conservation, or bookbinding study. Class size is
limited. Application requirements include a short personal statement
on the role of the class in your work, a phone conversation, and
images showing three-dimensional studio work of some kind if
possible. Students will need to supply their own hand tools, or
purchases them at NBSS. For more information, please contact Chela
