Study Day: Whitworth Art Gallery

November 16th 2015

1.30-5pm

We will be taking a small group to visit the Whitworth Art Gallery (http://www.whitworth.manchester.ac.uk/) for a tour of the gallery and a curator-led session in the new Study Center looking at domestic furnishing textiles and wallpapers from the Whitworth’s extensive collection with Amy George, Curator (Wallpaper and Textiles).

A recent £15 million development has transformed the Whitworth, doubling it in size and creating new spaces to display and explore the collections and has this year been awarded the Art Fund’s prestigious prize of Museum of the Year 2015.

The Whitworth houses one of the most important wallpaper collections in the country along with an internationally important collection of over 20,00 textiles from across the world, dating from the third century AD to the present.

The study day is free to attend, but booking is essential as places are limited and allocated on a first come, first served basis.

To book a place: please return a completed booking form  to Danielle Patten dpatten@geffrye-museum.org.uk.
