Hands-On History Workshop: Clothing and Textiles

Join the Idaho State Historical Society’s collections team to explore how we keep historic materials safe for generations to come. We’ll provide the experts and archival tools to guide you in the dos and don’ts of preservation! Bring a family textile, such as a wedding dress or quilt, for this hands-on workshop as we guide you through the care and keeping of your precious fabric heirlooms. Your artifact preservation kit will include:

  • 1 archival costume and textile storage box
  • Acid free tissue
  • Archival label and label holder
  • Quick reference preservation worksheet

Materials must fit in a 30” x 18” x 6” box. Admission is included in your ticket price so you can discover more in Exhibiting Curiosity, the museum’s newest exhibit, after the workshop. Registration is limited to 30 attendees.

Tickets are $45 for ISHS Members and $60 for non-members.
