Explore the Collection Store: A Focus on Fabric
February 2022 – February 2023
Included with your admission to The Stained Glass Museum
This exhibition highlights pieces not usually on display from the museums collection store.
Like many museums, The Stained Glass Museum can only display a small selection from its collection at one time. With over 2000 objects in our collection, we try to showcase examples through temporary exhibitions, such as this one, throughout the year.
This exhibition features examples acquired by the museum over the last few years, with a particular focus on the beautiful fabrics depicted within the windows.
From fine lace and beautiful rich colours to the more utilitarian - the clothing worn by the people depicted in the panels help us to identify them. The fabric chosen often tells us about their status or role too.
Both secular and religious examples are on display with fabrics fit for both Kings and peasants alike.
Tuesday-Saturday 10am-4pm (last admission 3:30pm)
