A Conversation with a Textile Conservator

March 18 @ 2:00 pm

Come to a free lecture by textile conservator Kathryn Tarleton, co-founder of ConText Inc. Ms. Tarleton will explain what textile conservators do and share the fascinating “behind-the-scenes” work conservators do in order to preserve historic objects and prepare them for exhibition. This lecture will be held at the Mattapoisett Free Public Library on Sunday, March 18 from 2:00 to 3:00 pm. Please note: Attendees can bring in one textile object and based on time available, Ms. Tarleton will identify a sampling of objects as well as provide tips about how to best care for one’s own textile and family heirlooms.

Please register for this event (reservations appreciated but walk-ins welcome) by calling 508-758-4171 or emailing rsmith@sailsinc.org and provide the number of people attending and contact information. The Library is located at 7 Barstow Street and is handicapped accessible.
