Caring for Textiles
We welcome you to join us for a special day looking at how to care for your treasured textiles in your own home. Bring an item from your personal collection for our experienced historians and archivists to help identify and advise on how to create museum standard storage. Find out more about household pests, advice on cleaning and preventative measures for the future. In the afternoon our team will show you how to stitch a protected coat hanger for storing your vintage clothes, padded boards for flat textiles and padded mounts for framing.
When choosing an item to bring, please be mindful of size due to the time limitations. If you would like any advice do please email us with a low res image and measurements.
Light refreshments will be provided.
