HBC | Introduction to Archival Paper Repair

May 15, 2021

Bookbinder and Paper Conservator Gudrun Aurand will demonstrate basic paper repair techniques. These can be applied to pages in books or any flat art work or document. An introduction into properties of paper will set the frame and demonstration of mending techniques, materials and tools will provide participants with the basic knowledge needed to perform archivally sound paper repair. The presenter will introduce a decision making tree, which will allow participants to achieve the most effective outcome for the repair needed. How to mend a tear, cut or hole requires each a different approach. Among others the presenter will demonstrate how to outline and tear a piece of mending paper in order to repair the damage in the least obtrusive way. She will discuss pros and cons of using either starch paste or PVA (white glue). Participants are encouraged to bring a project of their own that they may have questions about and which could be discussed to the benefit of all at the end of the demonstration.
