This four-day workshop explores the how and why of museum exhibit mountmaking with an emphasis on object safety and preventive conservation. This object centered approach will teach methods for analyzing objects for their condition and balance, making templates for accurate mount fabrication, and the construction of mounts in brass and other metals. Engineering concepts and their application to mountmaking and hands-on practice in metal forming, silver brazing, and mechanical fastenings will be integral to the workshop.

As the workshop progresses, we will focus on working with plastics and other alternative materials for mountmaking. We may also work with mounts for textiles or other specialized object types, as well as discussing basic principles of seismic stabilization. The direction of this part of the workshop is somewhat determined by the interests of the participants. In the spirit of a true workshop, the collaboration of all participants with each other and as a group of dedicated professionals will be encouraged.
