Conservation Research and Māori Textiles

Thursday 7 November 2013, 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm


Discover new research in the conservation of Te Papa’s Māori textiles with our specialist Rangi Te Kanawa in this exclusive back-of-house event for Friends of Te Papa.

For some years Rangi has been involved with ground-breaking research into the causes of deterioration in Māori textiles in Te Papa’s collection. Join her to see and hear what’s being done to prevent our precious taonga (treasures) self-destructing. This is a wonderful opportunity to go back-of-house, view the collection store, and see examples of Rangi’s work.

Ticket includes free parking and a special offer voucher for Level 4 Espresso.

Registrations required – numbers limited. To book your place, send us an email using the ‘Book now’ button, or phone the office on (04) 381-7051.
