Reid Thomas and Jeff Adolphsen of the State Historic Preservation Office will be the lead instructors and offer their wisdom about important and achievable preservation measures for historic structures. 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. She will guide participants in hands-on practice with fosshape—a malleable and budget-friendly material used to construct mannequins and additional supports. Participants will also practice creating paper mannequin hair.
