Attendees learn from experts about preservation, culture, and history, and are allowed into closed parts of Historic New England's homes, as well as significant private homes. Turino says the course appeals to anyone interested in New England architecture and material culture. "We typically get owners of historic houses, and people just wanting to learn more about New England as well as graduate students, curators, preservationists, and college professors." But what really makes the program special is its intimacy. Many presenters join the group for the day—sometimes even for the week—taking time to so- cialize with attendees and experts, which is a crucial part of the experience. "This program creates lasting relation- ships," Turino says. "People make connections and keep connections," sometimes throughout their lives. And as any curator would agree, that is valuable indeed. in-depth LIVE American Textile History Museum The museum hosts monthly classes featuring a variety of textile special- ties. 978-441-0400, Historic New England Program in New England Studies June 15–20, $1,500 (members); $1,550 (nonmembers) This intensive learning experience features lectures by curators and archi- tectural historians, workshops, and behind-the-scenes tours of Historic New England's proper- ties and collections, as well as other museums and private homes in the region.
