Textile Study Collections
Curated by Lolli Jacobsen
The PTArts Textile Study Collection started with the donation of largely ‘ethnic’ textiles that Lolli Jacobsen has amassed to illustrate aspects of the Textile History class she taught. These pieces were collected at thrift shops, conferences and stores, received as gifts, and collected while traveling over 50 years. The original collection has been augmented by generous donations from individuals and estates.
With the help of resources in the PTArts library and individuals with expertise in the community Lolli is documenting the collection. Volunteers are welcome to help with this effort and will receive individual instruction about the textiles being worked on and/or exhibited. The collection is available by appointment and occasional gallery shows. Contact Lolli at firstname.lastname@example.org
