Guest Speaker: Meredith Wilcox-Levine Textile Conservator, Textile Conservation Workshop
Topic: Considerations for the Mounting, Framing and Preservation of Textiles

Have you ever wondered how to properly mount and frame a clients prized textile? What if the textile is old and in poor condition? Join us as Meredith Wilcox-Levine provides insight from a conservator's point of view on these sentimental possessions.

Textiles are commonplace in private and historic collections, and many are created with the intention of framed display. Both natural and synthetic textile fibers can be delicate and difficult when it comes to care and display.

This presentation will provide information regarding the safe and proper handling of such materials in the context of mounting and framing. Basics of textile properties and production will be included to further the understanding of these problematic pieces.

Meredith will also provide information regarding important storage and environmental conditions, suggested mounting techniques and materials, and when to consider engaging a conservator.

This presentation is free for members as a benefit of membership.
