Join curator Sasha Suda and conservator Lisa Ellis of the AGO, together with Catherine Yvard of the Gothic Ivories Project, as they explore the Thomson Collection’s impressive group of Gothic Ivories.  This workshop will start with a short in-class presentation on the history of ivory trade and production and will segue into the galleries for an in-depth tour of the Gothic ivories on view.  The second half of the workshop will take place in the conservation lab, where Sasha and Lisa will guide participants through looking closely at ivories and Catherine Yvard will point out ways in which medieval manuscripts and ivories are alike.  The discussion will continue over an exclusive dinner in the AGO’s Frank restaurant, and conclude with a public talk by Catherine Yvard in the AGO’s Jackman Hall.
