Hi Lauren,

Have you contacted NEDCC or The Conservation Center for Art & Historic Artifacts (CCAHA)? Both are on the East Coast, so I’d start there. Also Lyrasis.

How fast you want it (next week? next year?) and how hands-on you want make some differences. Do you have enough space (and drainage) for a wading pool for some really authentic training, or do you want something a little less messy? Both have their advantages.

I did a wet demo with a tub and discarded materials for the Kentucky C2C series. It got a good response on site, since it prompts more questions when you’re gathered around wet “stuff”, and comments (I didn’t know a wet book was so heavy! How do you lift out all that paper without it tearing? The photographs are floating!)
