February repairs at the Waste House, during the Science Festival…


Michael walked us through the process of repairing the cover of a vintage Russian book on house keeping …




The cover was removed with a stanley knife and the old glue scraped from the surface.

The book was placed in a makeshift clamp between two pieces of wood tightened with gardening wire.


Copydex glue was applied and a remnant of denim fixed to the surface.
