Loans Box Info & Request Form

This service is currently suspended due to the pandemic (August 2021).

The loans box has been designed to support learning how to mount historic dress. It contains demonstration samples of some of the supports you may need, instructions on how to make them and swatches of the materials you could use. The box is free to borrow, but you have to cover the cost of transport to and from your venue and arrange insurance.

If you would like to request the box, please fill in the form below.
