The start of the New Year is when the preventive conservation team ‘spring’ into action to clean the first-floor galleries collection. There are a vast number of treasures on open display in these rooms and it’s vital to protect them from damage and deterioration – especially dust. Join us for a short talk about how this detailed work is carried out, how the different objects are cared for & see the specialist equipment used by our team as they fight the battle against dust!
Once upon a time, there was you, your textile and your story. From Granny’s old teddy to your child’s christening robe, textiles hold memories for us all. We’d like to meet you and learn about the textiles that are important to you, and record your special stories about them. So please bring along your cherished textile to this relaxed and informal story sharing day and tell us all about it.
Sessions are an hour long, during which time your stories will be filmed and our textile conservator Cecilia will advise you how to preserve your textile for the future.
