Exhibit Preparation Tips & Tricks

Wilton Historical Society
Friday, April 5, 2024 | 11:00-12:30

Join Wilton Historical Society's Director Nick Foster for a hands-on workshop to learn how to prepare your objects for an exhibit. This program will demonstrate how you can save on framing costs by doing it yourself with materials that many museums likely already have or can source for a lower cost than bringing it to a framer. 

For this program, you will bring your own "object", anything as simple as something you print off of your home computer, and then practice using a mat cutter at the Society so you can practice your own framing. Nick will provide a step-by-step workshop so you can bring the skills you learn back to your organization.

Wilton Historical Society will also be installing an exhibition while the program is happening, so attendees can get a sneak peak at the "Wilton Works" exhibition to see how they are creating an exhibition with an interactive focus for less than $1000.

This will be in an in-person program and the attendee will need to provide their own "object" for the demo. Registration is required as space is limited.
