Presented by Jorji Gardener – Printmaker Artist and volunteer at the South Australian Museum & Artlab Australia


Jorji Gardener will be presenting her experience with the treatment of a large scale of historical museum labels of the egg collection of Captain S.A. White from the South Australian Museum. The labels are mainly written with iron-gall inks but also graphite pencils, ballpoint pen inks and copying pencils. The technical challenges and organization of the conservation project will be reported in this presentation. Jorji’s interest in the production of iron-gall ink and ornithology has brought her to develop a unique art project that has recently resulted in an exhibition at the Hamra Auditorium Gallery and the publication of a book. This Chinwag is intended as a fusion of conservation, craftsmanship, ecology, sustainability, and art.

What is a Chinwag?

The South Australia and Northern Territory division of the AICCM is promoting a series of Chinwags on conservation experiences, projects and research for all the AICCM members and external attendees.

Chinwags are short informal moments for conservators and conservation scientists to share their experiences, findings, questions and solutions encountered during their work. Presentations can be of 15/20 minutes followed by questions and answers.
