Get Hands On with History this Saturday!

This month’s Hands On History session casts an artistic eye over the collection, examining different types of art and artistic techniques from around the world.

All of the objects represent some of the depth and diversity of the collections, from Chinese papers dolls to a Tibetan statuette. However it was an artefact a bit closer to home that really caught my attention! I discovered a hand embroidered map, created to celebrate the Festival of Britain in 1951. This colourful and humorous piece of art features images of William Shakespeare, a London Beefeater, a Welsh harpist and a Scottish piper amongst others.

Why not pop along on Saturday 18 October between 11am to 4pm to see if you agree!Hands On History 1
