The workshops are part of the Museum’s current Dressed to Impress fashion exhibition and aim to give participants techniques to store their dress properly - covering packaging basics and how to keep your garment as perfect as the day you floated down the aisle.
They are co-hosted by Sorenson Art Conservation, with support from the Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF). The expert advice will cover the characteristics and environmental sensitivities of different fabrics and features of wedding gowns and veils such as lace, silk, sequins and beads.
It will equip attendees with the knowledge needed to safely store their precious and probably pricey wedding gown including where to order a textile box and packing materials. No cleaning or conservation treatment will be undertaken at the workshop. Attendees are invited to bring one wedding gown and one veil only to the workshop.
Two lucky participants will also WIN the chance to have their wedding dress professionally packed during the course of the workshop.
Participation costs $40 and there are two sessions:
Both sessions will be held at Cairns Museum.
