    Reproducing historically accurate clothing in a museum setting encompasses a multitude of skills and processes, including research and development, use of period and modern construction techniques, as well as sharing this knowledge and skill with our guests who visit Plimoth Plantation.

    The Historical Clothing and Textiles: Wardrobe Production intern will learn, practice and apply the steps involved in reproducing period clothing for a living history museum. This will include historical research with access to departmental and museum libraries, pattern drafting, period construction techniques, and 17th-century accessories or trims (thread-wrapped buttons, card woven trim, hat making, etc.). They will also experience the unique workings of a wardrobe shop in a museum environment. This internship reports to the Manager of Historic Clothing & Textiles.

    For more information about these and other internship opportunities, please visit www.plimoth.org/internships. To apply for the Internship Program at Plimoth Plantation, please submit an online application no later than March 31, 2018. Questions about the Plimoth Plantation Internship Program can be directed to interns@plimoth.org.
