Silk items are commonplace in many historic collections. For a variety of reasons, silk tends to be delicate and difficult when it comes to care and display. In this webinar, our presenter will provide information for the care of silk objects in small museum collections. History of use and production will be included, to further the understanding of these problematic pieces. The presenter will also provide information regarding storage and environmental conditions, as well as display options, and when you should consider engaging a conservator to help you.
Presenter: Meredith Wilcox-Levine is a textile conservator at the Textile Conservation Workshop in South Salem, NY.
