Looking Beyond the Closet:

Storage Options and Implementation on a Budget

This six-hour workshop will focus on the storage of historic objects and textiles.  

Ron Harvey of Tuckerbrook Conservation will review storage environments, storage of historic objects and furniture, and appropriate storage materials. Ron will demonstrate hands-on use of storage materials techniques. 

Morning snacks will be available.  Bring your own bagged lunch to enjoy at half time!

The workshop will be held in the visitors center, the building with the blue roof just north of the museum.

Stick around for a MAM social mixer event with refreshments in the museum building to immediately follow this workshop!

This event is supported by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
