This is the fourth class that we have taught for the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute. It’s a lot of fun introducing students to the joys (and trials) of working in a conservation lab. All the material is pre-cut for the class participants ready for them to assemble. Well, almost ready to assemble. They still have to cut the cloth down to size, miter the corners, attach the cloth and pastedown, and make a hinge. Bill Voss has made jigs of various sizes to assist with spacing of hinge strips and mitering. The album has a fold-in hinge so that the posts are hidden.
