This one day workshop starts with a discussion on the significance flags have had throughout the history of Canada. We will also give participants the information on how flags are created, highlighting their weaknesses that can contribute to their deterioration as they age. Participants will be introduced to the methods of deterioration that affect these fragile textiles, proper storage and display techniques for flags, and how to exhibit these items in a respectful manner.
