Learn to make custom enclosures, for your historical documents and paper artifacts!

Mennonite Life Collections Curator Sara Berkovec and Archivist/Librarian Julia Wiker teach a hands-on workshop where participants learn to make clear protective envelopes for treasured documents to reduce the risk of permanent damage when handling unframed historical paper.

“This is the same process I use to protect critical works on paper in the Mennonite Life collection,” says Sara Berkovec, collections curator.

Participants bring two documents, share their significance with the group, and create protective sleeves to preserve them. The workshop includes all necessary materials.

Preregister by Friday, May 27. Members receive a 10% discount.
