New staff members appointed!

Two new members of the staff joined the Museum in January, whom we very much look forward to working with.

Our Learning Officer, Ellie Wallace, studied History of Art at Aberdeen University before completing a master’s degree in Museum and Gallery Education at the University of Newcastle. She completed education internships at Kew Gardens and the Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art before taking on a role as Learning Assistant at the National Trust property of Tyntesfield.

Charlie Hartshorn, our Events Officer, graduated from the University of Glamorgan in 2013 with first-class honours in Fashion Promotion. She spent a year studying for a master’s degree in Fashion Studies at Stockholm University before volunteering with the National Trust at Snowshill Manor and Garden as a visitor programme intern, and Lacock Abbey co-ordinating craft activities for the Christmas period.

Fancy joining our Quilting Bees?

Every Tuesday within the main March-November season, 12noon-4pm, quilting groups from all over the region demonstrate their talents and chat with visitors in our Textiles Room.

If you are a local group who would like to be one of our ‘Bees’ this year, please contact us

Please give generously to our Annual Appeal

The Museum has raised £16,000 so far from generous donors towards our latest annual appeal in aid of our beautiful gardens.

We are asking supporters to underwrite the first phase of an ambitious project called “Roots and Shoots”. The project aims to improve our gardens and their supporting facilities for everyone’s greater enjoyment.

We still need to raise a further £4,000 to meet our £20,000 target to fund the first phase: a new potting shed to replace the existing 1960s structure, which is leaky and no longer adequate to service large gardens in the 21st century.

 Please donate today here!
