Making a Four-Flap Enclosure


Event details


Eastern Time (ET)

This program of the Conservation Center for Art & Historic Artifacts is provided with generous support from the William Penn Foundation, with additional support from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, and Independence Foundation.

CCAHA is committed to providing universal access to our programs. Advance notice is necessary to arrange for some accessibility needs; please contact Stephenie Bailey, by email at or by phone 215-545-0613 ext 314, at least seven days prior to the start of this event to make specific arrangements.

Preservation housing is intended to provide safe and efficient storage for collections items. A four-flap enclosure for paper pamphlets, documents, and photographs has a fundamental design that prioritizes a variety of condition concerns, accommodates user access, and reduces unnecessary handling.  How can you design a custom-sized four-flap enclosure of preservation-quality materials? Register early for this webinar and receive tools and supplies to construct a four-flap enclosure, and join a synchronistic activity with the instructor.* 

*Registration required by March 10th to receive participant packet by mail and limited to 30 participants.
