The Heritage Hill Museum in Dandenong is presenting a series of professional workshops, including a full day textile care workshop on Friday 29th August. This will be presented by Christina Ritschel of the National Gallery of Victoria and include issues relating to the preservation and display of textiles.
Older fabric and clothing can be quite delicate and is often damaged through the process of wearing, washing and storing – this is a rare opportunity to meet with an expert in the field and discuss how to identify damage and prevent it’s future occurrence. Places are limited – if you’re interested in learning more, I encourage you to book a place. Cost is $25, which includes lunch, morning and afternoon tea (how civilised is that?)
For further information or to book contact Heritage Hill on 9793 4511.
