Description: Danielle Glynn and Gabrielle Carlo will show attendees how to make different kinds of enclosures. They will start with a review of the four-flap enclosure that Gabrielle taught at the first enclosures workshop, and will show attendees how to turn that enclosure into a three-flap enclosure, or peek-a-boo-type enclosure. They will also show attendees how to make a box with a lid out of folder stock, and how to store smaller items using remnants of folder stock. Attendees can expect to learn how to safely store not only books that need extra attention, but also audio-visual materials and smaller objects. Folder stock and other tools will be provided.
Attendees may bring the following materials from their own collections that they can make an enclosure for, if they wish:
Folder stock and some other archival supplies will be provided for the hands-on activities. Attendees will take home their finished products!
