Providing collection care, preservation and conservation treatment services to collectors and collecting institutions.
Online Museum Classes
Baskets are an important part of nearly every world culture. Caring for baskets requires an understanding of why and how they deteriorate. Care of Baskets provides a simplified explanation of the chemistry and structure of basketry materials. Starting with an overview of the history and function of baskets and how they are made, Care of Baskets will cover guidelines for handling, labeling, exhibiting and storing baskets, including condition assessments and an introduction to integrated pest management. An overview of treatments used on baskets and how appropriate they are for the long-term preservation of the basket will help students make care decisions when consulting with conservators.
Participants in Care of Baskets work through sections on their own. Materials and resources include online literature, slide lectures and dialog between students and the instructor through online forums.
Care of Baskets runs six weeks. To reserve a spot in the course, please pay at http://www.collectioncare.org/tas/tas.html If you have trouble please contact Helen Alten at firstname.lastname@example.org
