In 2015, Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens began a $1M restoration of 15 spaces in the Manor House, a project that encompasses everything from custom-made reproduction fabrics and trims to working with professional conservators to repair and preserve the museum’s collection. On Thursday, May 25, join Candace Marang of Stan Hywet’s Needlework Guild and ICA-Art Conservation’s Jane Hammond for a presentation about a few of the restoration projects completed to date -- including the Farthingale Settee; a piece in the Linenfold Hallway that was designed specifically for Stan Hywet and upholstered with panels taken from antique tapestries, some possibly dating to the 1500s.
