Technical Work


Iris Fryer

In the past six years I have completed a bachelor’s degree in fine arts at Queen’s University in Kingston, and a graduate certificate in museum management and curatorial studies at Fleming College in Peterborough. Through these two post-secondary programs and my volunteer work at the Canadian Canoe Museum in Peterborough, I have developed a wide range of hand skills and technical problem solving skills relating to fine arts and museum collections, including museum conservation and construction.

My first mixed-media diorama – a summer and winter recreational scene of the Otonabee River in Peterborough, Ontario featuring the historic lift-lock.


Conservation work – cleaning a dugout canoe at the Canadian Canoe Museum and removing rust from the hooks of a 1930s fishing lure at the Peterborough Museum and Archives.
