The workshop was organised by our project partners from the National Museum of Denmark and the Danish National Research Foundation’s Centre for Textile Research, University of Copenhagen.

On the 6 and 7 October 2011, 28 participants from Denmark, Sweden, United Kingdom, Finland, France, Italy, Germany and Australia took part in the 3rd project workshop on Early Modern Textile Production. The workshop was organised by Marie-Louise Nosh (Centre for Textile Research, University of Copenhagen), Maj Ringgaard (National Museum of Denmark) and Tove Engelhardt Matthiassen (Open Air Museum, Aarhus).

In the morning of the first day, participants visited the Brede Manor House, the National Museum conservation workshop and the Rosenborg Castle conservation department where they saw selected items from the Royal Danish costume collection. In the afternoon, they visited the study rooms of the National Museum’s Store Rooms where they saw selected textiles from NMD’s collections. On the second day, the participants visited the Old Town Museum in Aarhus and had the opportunity to view selected items from the textile collection. The afternoon of the second day was dedicated to a PhD student presentation session followed by a discussion.
