THE CONSERVATION & ARCHAEOLOGY of TEXTILES AND RELATED OBJECTS

28 January, 2017

Venue: Friend's Meeting House, Friargate, York, YO1 9RL

We have an exciting day in store, with two particularly interesting speakers touching on area’s we have not looked at before. Dr M.Faye Prior is a Collections Facilitator in the History Curatorial Team at the York Museums Trust. She has worked closely with the Castle Museum’s Costume and Textiles collection for almost four years, becoming heavily involved in mounting the costume for their current exhibition, ‘Shaping the Body’ and others. Dr. Prior also leads the Museum Sewing group of amazing volunteers who make reproduction garments for visitors to try on, and Kirkgate’s Guides/Volunteers to wear!

Do you have some/an item(s) in your care that present you with storage issues? Dr. Prior may be able to offer some answers, if you have any interesting pieces the members might enjoy.

Our afternoon speaker is Dr Simon Tomson, is an expert in the fields of both Archaeology & Geology. Now based in Grimsby, Dr Tomson works throughout the county, mainly lecturing for the WEA. His specialism uncovers (!) items older, rarer, (and presumably grubbier!) than we are used to hearing about but incredibly informative of their period: brooches, pins, grave–finds, burial jewellery etc. Exhilarating stuff!

 

 PROGRAMME: 10.30am: Coffee/Tea on arrival

 11.00am: ‘Preventative Conservation’, Dr M. Faye Prior 

 12.30pm: Your own choice of lunch nearby or bring a packed lunch
