Behind the Seams


An opportunity to look closely at the Nottingham City Museums and Galleries Costume and Textile Collection.

Some members of NBLS were invited to visit Newstead Abbey and take a guided tour behind the scenes with the collections curator Judith Edgar.  Members were able to see different parts of the collection including both hand made and machine lace. Some of the conservation work in progress was also seen. This work has been funded by the Arts Council.
