Boxes for rolled items Tickets, Mon, 7 Mar 2016 at 09:00 |

Ebbene sì non abbiamo solo da imparare, brave Veronica e Claudia che andate a insegnare alla British Library !

 Workshop on scroll-boxes

Icon Book and Paper Group Scroll-box Workshop
The British Library Centre for Conservation
96 Euston Road
London NW1 2DB, UK
7-9 March 2016
9:30am - 5pm

Tutors: Claudia Benvestito and Veronica Zoppi

The Icon Book and Paper Group Co-operative Training Register is
delighted to present this workshop, generously hosted by the British
Library and supported by Conservation by Design.

This three day course will teach participants how to make a bespoke
box for rolled paper and parchment documents.  This multi-function
box not only provides safe housing for the document but also enables
it to be safely and easily accessed and displayed in-situ.

The box, with its slanting base, was originally designed to house
Ethiopian magic scrolls and is particularly well suited to housing
small vertically rolled documents on paper or parchment.  During the
workshop, modifications necessary to make the box suitable for
housing horizontally rolled documents will be discussed.  The
document is rolled onto two cylindrical concertina structures,
supporting it and allowing it to be scrolled up and down for
consultation or display.  No mounting strips are necessary but can
be added if desired.  Both options will be demonstrated and
discussed during the workshop.

Participants will each make one box, including the concertina
supports.  They will learn to measure and cut the board, paper and
cloth and will prepare cutting patterns in order to better
understand the box's structure.  The final box will be constructed
from pre-cut board.  In this way participants will take away both a
finished box and the board and cloth cutting patterns which can be
used for future reference.

There will be discussions and demonstrations of different housing
possibilities throughout the workshop.  Participants are encouraged
to bring objects for discussion and during the practical sessions
each participant will be given one object to house.
