Director's Series:Manchester to Montgomery: Textile Conservation in the UK &USA w/ Howard Sutcliffe


Howard Sutcliffe is a textile conservator in private practice based in Montgomery, Alabama. After training at the Courtauld Institute of Art in London, Howard’s professional life has seen him work at several institutions on both sides of the Atlantic, conserving objects as disparate as Tiraz fragments from Medieval Egypt to Kermit the Frog. This presentation will chart his journey, outline the basics of textile conservation practice and theory using examples of past projects along the way, and will finish with a more in depth look at a couple of recent projects by Howard Sutcliffe, textile conservator with River Region Textile & Costume Conservation.
