Conservation Tour: Textiles

Many of the textiles lent to Two Temple Place present unique conservation and display challenges. Ann French, Collections Care Manager and Conservator (Textiles), Whitworth Art Gallery, discusses these and shares her experiences working with a contemporary textile collection in this special tour of Unbound.

This event has been programmed as part of a series to accompany the exhibition UNBOUND: Visionary Women Collecting Textiles. For more public events, please click here.
