Fall 2016 Adult Ed Lecture

Do you have old family letters, photos or other documents tucked away in the attic that you don’t know what to do with? Unsure of how to preserve them or, if they are damaged, how to restore them? If yes, please join us in the Seim Room at First Congregational Church of Western Springs on Wednesday, October 5th at 7 p.m. when Russ Maki, President of Graphic Conservation, will talk about paper conservation, particularly as it relates to family documents. Russ will discuss how paper based works can degrade over time and share before and after examples of various works on paper, including some of national historic importance that Graphic Conservation has had the honor to work on. Attendees are welcome to bring an old family document with them to the lecture – there will time after the presentation when Russ can offer advice on restoring and preserving your family treasures.┬áThis talk is free and open to all. Please enter the Christian Ed building through the north doors off the parking lot. The Seim Room is on the 2nd floor at the top of the stairs in the center of the building.
