    nicoleMuseum objects spend a significant amount of time in collection storage. Proper housing of these objects while in storage aids in the stabilization, organization, access, and security of the overall collection. When an object is properly housed, the effects of light exposure, handling errors, and environmental fluctuations are mitigated (amongst other agents of deterioration.) This webinar will address concerns in creating safe and effective housings for the storage of 3-dimensional objects. A selection of commercial storage materials will be reviewed along with the decision-making process for choosing an appropriate enclosure type. Techniques and tips on how to create supportive storage mounts will be covered. By applying the knowledge gained from the webinar, participants will be encouraged to build their own storage mounts for an object of their choice once their tool kit arrives.

    In this webinar, participants will:

    • receive a basic “tool kit” of archival materials and tools to experiment with
    • identify potential conservation concerns before handling an object and assess the condition and storage requirements of an object of their choice
    • learn concepts and techniques on how to construct simple enclosures and supportive mounts
    • apply the knowledge gained to build a box and storage mount

    Nicole Peters is an objects conservator in private practice who has worked extensively throughout the state of Alaska. Nicole received her M.A and Certificate of Advanced Study in Art Conservation from Buffalo State College in 2016. She has worked extensively with the Alaska Region National Park Service, Alaskan Native Cultural Centers, local museums, and non-profit organizations conserving collections and performing backcountry preservation work throughout the state of Alaska. Nicole has also completed conservation projects at the Museum of Indian Arts & Culture in Santa Fe, NM, the Indianapolis Museum of Art, the Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art, the Smithsonian Institution National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C., and the Anchorage Museum in Anchorage, Alaska. She has also performed preservation work and conducted research projects at the Amarna archaeological site in Tell el-Amarna, Egypt, and has worked on Islamic artworks and Damascene architectural interiors at the Shangri La, the Doris Duke Center for Islamic Art and Cultures, in Honolulu, HI. The experiences Nicole has accrued continue to inspire her to work with collections containing cultural, archaeological, and historical objects and artworks.

    This webinar includes supplies which will be mailed after the webinar. Please include the appropriate mailing address for the supplies when registering.

    Webinar will be hosted on Zoom. You will receive the webinar link and password via email after your registration is confirmed.

    This project is supported by a Grant-In-Aid from the Alaska State Museum, and is made possible through partnership with the Western Museums Association.
