What is the Burrell Collection Tapestries Project?

with 2 comments

 The Burrell Collection has over 200 tapestries.  The Research Project aims to study these in-depth and will result in a detailed catalogue of the tapestries in the collection, and an accessible research archive. 

 A Public Programme supports and runs alongside the Research project. The Public Programme provides public access to the work being done in the exhibition space, and the reasons behind it.

 Particular emphasis is placed on the work taking place on the larger tapestries taking place in the exhibition space.  Information about the project is on display to place these specialist tasks within their wider context. You can also explore the tapestries still on display throughout the museum.

We also have a diverse series of events tailored to a variety of audiences – keep an eye out for more details!
