SAVE ME!-15th and 16th Century Textiles in the Philadelphia University
Recently found a box with approximately a dozen or so samples of textiles
from the 15th and 16th century (there are a few 17th century in there too).
Most were brocades, some were silk velvets and they ranged in scale from
clothing use to full on wall hangings.
Full back story here:
So here is the deal, as a fund raiser they have agreed to host *a small
hands on exhibition of these textiles*. This means that those who go can
examine them up close, in detail for a long duration (maybe two hours total
for the tour). The whole box will be pulled (I think). And yes, photos,
sketches, magnifying glasses are all welcome. Go ahead and count the
threads per inch, its fine.
The tour will be approximately 10-20 folks and since its a fund raiser it
will be somewhere between $50-100 a person.
The money will go directly to helping *these *textiles get better housing in
larger boxes and for some flat preservation.
And as always...
