Caring For Your Keepsakes Workshop
September 7 @ 10:00 am - 12:45 pm$15 – $20
The Thomasville History Center wants to help you learn how to care for your keepsakes. We have invited conservator Howard Sutcliffe to share tips for preserving, maintaining, and storing your family’s treasures. On Saturday, September 7, Sutcliffe will present a brief lecture on the best methods for at-home conservation and his recommendations for how to put those lessons into practice with your own heirlooms. The lecture will begin at 10am.
Following the lecture, we will host a conservation consultation workshop. This part of the program will require advance registration. Each registrant will have a 5-minute consultation with Sutcliffe to discuss an item of their choosing which they will bring in. Consultation registration will be $15 for current members and $20 for non-members. Lecture attendees are encouraged to stay for Sutcliffe’s consultations, as they will occur in a group setting unless the registrant requests privacy. Neither the Thomasville History Center nor Mr. Sutcliffe will provide monetary evaluations on people’s personal property.
The History Center asks that you bring only smaller, easily transportable items for your consultation. Items like family bibles, papers, fabrics, or small decorative pieces are most appropriate. Large furnishings or paintings are not suitable for this program.
Use the appointment scheduling tool below to reserve your 5 minute consultation. You will then be automatically directed to the registration page to finalize your reservation. If you have any questions, please contact us.
