Afternoon tours of the Bellamy Mansion and the Burgwin-Wright House, as well as a presentation from Skye Dunning of Building Performance Specialists on environmental sustainability measures, will complement the morning preservation discussions.
Paige Myers, NC Museum of History Textile Conservator, will offer a wide range of tips on preservation-appropriate methods to display costumes.

Participants will also practice creating paper mannequin hair.
