Halton Heritage Services is considering offering professional development workshops on the topics of exhibit fabrication and design and are looking for feedback as to whether or not this would be of interest to the HME group.
Halton Heritage Services are in the very early planning stages, but are hoping to offer these workshops towards the end of 2017 or the beginning of 2018. The workshops are definitely hands-on and would likely be offered over two weekends (one weekend would cover exhibit production and fabrication and the second exhibition design) and be held at Heritage Services’ offices in Milton, where there is a full workshop and design studio for course participants use. Registration would be limited to 6-8 people and fees (inclusive of all materials) would be in the neighbourhood of $300-$350.
Topics to be covered include:
-exhibit panel design
-large format printing
-cold laminating and finishing
-substrates and materials
-hand tools and power tools
-related health and safety
In addition to the level of interest, Halton Heritage Services are interested in feedback on pricing (would the amount be within your budget?) along with any other topics members of the group might like to see in this type of workshop (we’ve constructed many of our own program pieces as well, so the skills are definitely transferable!)
Interested in providing feedback?
