Textile Preservation and Conservation Affinity Group: Documentation Session 2
Saturday, July 9th, 2022
*Please note this event will be limited to 100 participants
1pm EDT / 10 am PDT
Group Leaders: Annabelle Camp and Kris Cnossen
The Preservation and Conservation Affinity Group meetings encourage holistic practices, open conversation, and new ideas. We are hoping to continue discussing the different ways folks document their work, be they artists, engineers, scientists, conservators, curators, or crafters. Our meetings are often attended by textile enthusiasts, but if you are passionate about documentation practices, please feel comfortable to come and partake or just listen.
Two conservators, Camille Breeze and Marianne Weldon, presented on their documentation formats during our last meeting in April. After hearing from the attendees that they wanted time to discuss, we decided to host a second meeting about documentation. We encourage attendees to discuss Camille and Marianne’s formats, introduce their own formats, ask questions, pose theories, and get creative. This will be an informal discussion with no presentations.
