Volunteering for the barkcloth research project

30th March 2017

The conservation programme for the project is supported by Mphil students from Centre for Textile Conservation working with us as conservation volunteers.


In this blog post at the Textile Conservation: A blog about textile conservation at the University of Glasgow, four student volunteers share their experiences with working on the Pacific barkcloth from the Hunterian Museum and Economic Botany Collection, Royal Botanic Gardens Kew.
