Different members of the Conservation Team led the sessions. To make a soft mount we were taught how to make padded boards. The Team encouraged us to make different variations of Plastazote mounts - some with finger holes, Tyvek edges or fitting the contours of the object.

The afternoon session saw the group make Correx boxes to house the mounts made in the morning. The boxes could be customised with windows of Melinex to view the objects inside.
