STUDY DAYS: INTRODUCTION TO PAPER RESTORATION - IRC0322
Online, 19/20 March 2022
Cristina Balbiano d'Aramengo


This short seminar is structured to introduce the correct approach to paper repair, be it loose documents or book pages, analyzing damage, solutions, materials and techniques that can be used to carry out small conservation and restoration interventions, with small tools within reach of everybody.

It therefore proves suitable for beginners but also a useful compendium for those who already deal with bookbinding and must sometimes solve the problem of torn or incomplete papers, or pages detached from the body of the book.

No special skills are required.
After a first introductory theoretical session alternating with moments of practical demonstration, which will take place online, a practical exercise session will take place during which the participants will have the opportunity to directly experience the techniques shown, working on samples of papers made available in the laboratory, and later on, on their own material brought from home.
