Workshop on Conservation of Basketry at Museu de Arqueologia e Etnologia of Universidade de São Paulo (MAE/USP) (Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology, University of São Paulo)

From 6 to 9 April 2015 a group of 20 conservators and other conservation-related professionals got together at MAE/USP to work on techniques of conservation of basketry. The workshop was generously sponsored and organised by MAE/USP, through Ana Carolina Delgado Vieira (MAE/USP) - and led by Renata Peters (Institute of Archaeology, University College London).
It covered tangible and intangible aspects of basketry such as manufacturing techniques, modifications of raw materials, use in original contexts and assessments of significance. The last two days were fully dedicated to conservation techniques.
Besides great knowledge exchange, it was great fun! Here you can see images of some of the activities.
