The June 8 to 11 class. which has a limit of 12 students, already has 9 signed up. Also, the classes are cheaper if you sign up early. See the Beloit College website, https://beloit.edu/summer-programs/center-for-collection-care/ for details about the mount making classes. They also have a very good new video on their website that shows their Art Museum, their Anthropology Museum. their collections and their classroom facilities. Their facilities are great for hands-on mount making classes. They have a clean classroom area, an area for working with saws,drills, buffers, etc, and even a well ventilated metal brazing and welding area.

The Mount Making class (June 15 - 18) is the same as the class that Pam Gaible and Earl Lock have taught for over 20 years at the formerly known as Campbell Center. However, this year scholarships are available for people from small museums with limited budgets. Be sure to check out the website for details at www.beloit.edu/ccc The Advanced class (June 21-23) is offered for the first time by popular demand by students for a class that covers issues that more experienced mount makers have to deal with, such as: mounts for traveling exhibits; estimating the cost of mounts; preparing budgets for mount making projects; fabricating vibration resistant mounts for earthquakes, and next door building construction: and contracting mount making jobs. Students are encouraged to suggest special topics to be included.
