This five-day workshop will present the theoretical concepts and practical techniques of mountmaking for museum objects, set within a framework of an actual exhibit display. A “curated” set of objects will be selected for mounting in a defined space and exhibit design. Through this format, the intention is to present the practical problems of mounting objects for safe installation and aesthetic display while maintaining appropriate levels of care and conservation.

Templating for mount.

Mask Mount in process

The workshop will explore 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 steel, plastics, and other materials. Engineering concepts and their application to mountmaking and hands-on practice in metal forming, silver brazing, mechanical fastenings, and other fabrication techniques will be integral to the workshop.

Workshop well underway.

This workshop is being presented at a cost of $1300 ($250/day + $50 materials fee).  There are also possible scholarship arrangements for participants with special circumstances. Please write jamie@mountmakingfocus.com to discuss this possibility.
