Internship Opportunity

For any of you who may find this interesting, an internship opportunity was brought to my attention recently:-

Volunteer Intern
Museum Textile Services, Andover, MA
Museum Textile Services, a private textile conservation studio located in Andover, Massachusetts, is seeking applicants for two types of volunteer internships. Up to three Conservation Internships are available for beginner to intermediate applicants. They provide a sound introduction to art conservation philosophy, literature, and treatments and require excellent eyesight, sewing skills, and museum sensibilities. Current conservation projects include European tapestry, Asian art, and 19th-century costume. One collections management internship is also available for a volunteer seeking hands-on cataloguing and rehousing experience. This intern would be working primarily with the MTS study collection but would also assume collections management responsibilities for our active projects with opportunities for off-site visits. MTS internships require a minimum commitment of one day per week from 9:30 to 5:30 for a minimum of 120 hours. Internships are available beginning in June, 2012. Museum Textile Services is convenient to routes 495 and 93, and a 3-minute walk from the commuter rail line. To learn more about us please visit www.museumtextiles.com. To apply, please send your resume and a brief email of introduction to Camille Myers Breeze at info@museumtextiles.com

    1. You're welcome. A co-worker of mine told me about it, and I thought it might interest a few of my readers.
