Join us for a practical workshop to look at ways in which you can care for your fabric and textile treasures. Under the guidance of Sarah Howard, professional conservator, you will discover how to store, pack and display your fabrics and learn practical ways in which they can be repaired and conserved. Drawing on the experience and skills used behind the scenes at The D-Day Story, you will find out tips used by museum professionals to preserve and conserve their textile collections. You are welcome to bring your own treasured items of clothing or other fabrics for advice and guidance on how to care for it them.
