Ballarat Heritage Weekend

 Book care & archiving workshop

What can you do at home to care for your books? How can you clean, protect and store your book treasures in a cost effective and gentle way, to be sure you do not end up the instrument of their demise, hmmm? 

In this workshop, you will learn the basics of book care, book protection and storage. You'll bring a book to care for, and have a basic care kit and notes to take with you. There will be question and answer sessions, and free advice for your book problems and disasters. 
Places in the workshop are very limited, 
but additional kits are for sale on the day.
