The Icon Book & Paper Group Co-operative Training Register Invites you to an evening talk supported by the Clare Hampson Scholarship Trust. Hugh Phibbs has taught and published widely on the preservation of works on paper and other organic materials. In this presentation, he will illustrate the ways in which artefacts have been preserved in a natural setting, as well as explore artificial environments for the preservation of art works.  This will encompass looking at both the optimal conditions which lead to object’s deterioration and the use of materials such as glazing, adhesives, buffers, barriers and scavengers to create tight enclosures. The performance of anoxia framing will also be discussed.

Tickets: Icon members £5.00, non Icon members £8.00 (payable at the door), students free. Drinks will be available after the talk, partly sponsored by Conservation By Design.

Please arrive by 6:15pm.
