Protecting your Treasures – A Workshop for the Care and Preservation of your Heirlooms

Written by  Rose

Deadwood History's curator of collections, archivist and registrar will present a workshop to teach participants how to properly care for textiles, photographs and negatives, paper materials, metals and other things you might find among your keepsakes. Demonstration stations will be set up to allow a better understanding of how agents of deterioration—light, humidity, temperature and pests—can adversely affect some of your favorite keepsakes. The workshop will feature a hands-on segment where participants can practice some of the tips and techniques of preservation practices explained by our staff.

Participants will be given a variety of supplies to help them get started with their own preservation efforts. In addition, a valuable door prize of additional supplies will be awarded to one lucky winner. Light refreshments will be served.

The Caring for your Heirlooms Workshop is on Tuesday, April 12 from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. at the Homestake Adams Research and Cultural Center.  The workshop is free to the public. For more information please call 605-722-4800.

The workshop is made possible through funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), Deadwood Historic Preservation Commission, Deadwood History and Adams-Mastrovich Family Foundation.
