Lecture/Show and Tell: A Practical Guide for Rug and Textile Collectors

Wendel Swan, collector, event organizer, and museum trustee

Using both textiles and images, Wendel Swan will provide practical suggestions and advice for all aspects of collecting—from insuring and cleaning to researching your pieces. The audience is invited to bring one favorite rug or textile each to explain one aspect of their own collecting practices. Participants are invited to continue the discussion at a no-host lunch at or near the museum immediately following the presentation.

Rug and Textile Appreciation Mornings bring together textile experts and enthusiasts for a thematic show and tell of personal pieces. Free; no reservations required.
