Museum Archivist, Sandi Black, will facilitate this workshop, providing hints and tips on how to take the best care of your photographic collections at home.

Participants in the workshop will be able to get hands-on with some practical learning and make storage components to help keep photographs at their best.

You’ll also learn how to manage a family collection, recording information either on the photographs themselves, or in a book or even a database.

The free learning workshop is part of an ongoing schedule of public programmes at the Museum linked to the exhibition Between skin & shirt: The photographic portraits of William Harding. Upcoming events in September will include photography-themed talks in the Museum’s annual Spring Lecture series.

The photograph preservation workshop takes place in the Museum from 10.30am until 12.30pm, on Friday 18th August.  Admission to the workshop is free, though koha for the Museum is always appreciated. Bookings are essential: Phone 06 349 1110 or email info@wrm.org.nz.
