This tour is for Ashmolean Members only. Each tour lasts one hour.
With Sue Stanton and Nicky Lobaton, Conservation Team at the Ashmolean
Join the Ashmolean's Conservation Team for an in-depth, behind the scenes tour of the exhibition Colour Revolution: Victorian Art, Fashion & Design.
While the exhibition displays the colour and vibrancy which exploded in Victorian society, this intimate, after-hours tour reveals how the Ashmolean's Conservation Team worked to bring those colourful objects into the Museum’s galleries. Sue will talk about the conservation and mounting of the dazzling textiles and fragile costumes in the exhibition and Nicky will describe the conservator’s role in an object’s journey from being chosen for display through to the installation process.
This past event has now taken place.
