Event Details

Mary Schoeser is a widely published and internationally respected textile and wallpaper historian, who has worked in collaboration with, and advised many institutions over her 40 year career, including the V&A, National Trust and The Metropolitan museum of Art New York. Using examples chosen from the dress and textiles collections at the Study Centre in Norwich, Mary will share her extensive knowledge and passion for the subject and participants will have the unique opportunity to view selected pieces close-up and learn how to identify a number of textile types from a leading expert in the field.

 This session will be suitable for Curators and Volunteers responsible for Dress and Textile Collections. As this is a combined network CPD / SHARE event and the places we are able to offer are very limited, we would ask for one application only per institution. 

Refreshments will be provided but please bring your own lunch.
