The Weaving Residency

4 June 2019 - 13 October 2019

Event Navigation

During June-October we will set up a George Maxwell loom from our collection in the William & Margaret Rowling gallery which will be used for a residency by an early career weaver.  We are working in partnership with Cockpit Arts who support and develop makers through their provision of studio space and business mentoring.

Entry to The Weaving Residency is included in your museum entry ticket.

Part of Women’s Work, a major new exhibition on the work of craftswomen who turned their practice’s into successful businesses between the two World Wars. View the full programme below.
