Behind the Scenes (In Full Colour)
February 21, 2014 - David Webb
In January we gave you a sneaky peek at the designs for this year’s exhibition KAFFE 2014: The Colourful World of Kaffe Fassett. We are now busy getting the museum galleries ready for the opening on 22nd March. Not to be outdone by the colourful lanterns and pompoms which will hang from the yew tree outside the exhibition gallery, we have given the inside a makeover as well. Here are some photos we have taken during the alterations.
Steve the painter and Dave, our property technician, have transformed the galleries for what may be our brightest ever exhibition.

Here is our youngest volunteer, 9 year-old Matthew, who generously gave up some of his half term to help Rosie Wilks with the fabrics for the exhibition and to paint these wonderful, colourful chairs for the gallery space.
