Limited Capacity filling up

This workshop will focus on the nuts and bolts of safely packing and shipping art and artifacts. With a focus on materials and methods, attendees will be invited to bring their questions on everything from crate construction to packing materials, from soft packing to organizing the logistics of shipping everything from a single artwork to an entire exhibition. Examples of crate standards, packing methods, and various packing solutions will be available for attendees to both view and interact with. Case studies and demonstrations will provide attendees with a better understanding of the varied approached to caring for art in transit, as well as an introduction to the types of materials that are most commonly used in fine art crates.
