Mountmaking Focus Studio, Seattle, WA

Fundamentals of Mountmaking, December 2nd and 3rd 

Introduction to Mountmaking with Plastics, December 4th

Basic Seismic Stabilization, December 5th

Jamie Hascall will be offering a workshop on the Fundamentals of Mountmaking for Museum Objects on Saturday and Sunday, December 3rd and 4th. This workshop will be a two-day intensive covering the basics of mountmaking, with a major focus on mountmaking as a preventive conservation practice. Object assessment, design parameters, material choices, and fabrication techniques will all be covered. Participants will use skills learned to build a mount for a standard object, and on the second day will design and attempt a mount for a second object they can bring to the session. This workshop is aimed at students with minimal shop experience, but is appropriate for those of higher skill levels as well.

For the first time, this workshop will be followed on Monday with an additional session on Mountmaking with Acrylic and Other Plastics, and on Tuesday with the Basics of Seismic Stabilization for Museum Objects. These two sessions are meant to build on the skills learned during the Fundamentals Workshop, but can be taken as individual classes as well.

All workshop sessions will be held at Mountmaking Focus Studio in Seattle’s Fremont neighborhood. Location details will be provided with registration.
