    Morning presentations and afternoon demonstrations

    • Morning presentations will cover compression lifting rigs, a conceptual framework for rigging, and a review of various rigging equipment. 
    • Afternoon rigging demonstrations will cover various methods of lifting an object, along with a review of the equipment used with a gantry.

    Delaware PACCIN Social event!

    All work and no play, so they say...

    Before or after a hard day of learning how to lift big heavy things, PACCIN would like to invite not just participants in our Rigging Workshop, but any Collections Care folks from around the region to join us at a local watering hole for an informal evening of convivial conversation and networking with your colleagues.

    There is no charge to attend (though you will be encouraged to join PACCIN if you're not already a member!) and snacks will be provided thanks to the generous sponsorship of BIG NAME ART COMPANY OR TWO.

    Festivities start at 7 pm, guests are welcome. (?)
