A lot of folks come to me with books to clean and protect from the elements, and archive for the future. Though book repair and recovery can involve many complex treatments, the first steps are always quite simple things that you can, with a few tools, achieve yourself.  It saves you or your community group money, reduces the stress your book is under, and is an easy set of skills to learn.

In this workshop, you will learn the basics of book care, 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 a question and answer session, and free advice for your book problems and disasters. 

Places in the workshop are limited;
 additional kits are also for sale on the day.
