Once a semester, the Collection staff offer a limited number of object viewing appointments with staff where members of the public can bring a personal textile to discuss with staff. Object viewing appointments for Spring 2024 are now closed.

Immediately after the Open House, we are co-hosting the event Plants Make Color as part of the UW 175th Anniversary Community Open House – feel free to stop by!
