Printmaking and Paper Conservation: a hands-on, in-studio, in-depth study of the creation of fine prints on paper to the science of conservation or restoration processes through the lead of the creators and conservators.
About the Instructors:
Karin Broker is the print instructor at Rice University and will lead our program.
Lacey Vanderjagt is a conservator who studied at the Medici School in Florence. After Hurricane Katrina, Lacey restored textiles (including a shredded, historic banner from Coney Island) and works on paper, parchment, and vellum. She worked on architectural restoration at Louisiana State University hospital. Her work includes the restoration of historic documents at a nursing school in New Orleans and important Jewish artifacts (sacred scrolls on vellum, among others). Lacey’s philosophy is: “Conservation done right increases value. Conservation done wrong decreases the value.” Lacey says 70 percent of art conservation is science.
Lunch and local transportation will be provided.
