Unusual Adornment | Summer School Holiday Programme

16 December - 16 January 2017| Daily 10am-4pm

Adornment is usually an accessory or ornament worn to enhance the beauty of the wearer. This could be a top hat, bow tie, necklace or a brooch. It can also be something that is worn to embellish, enhance or distinguish the wearer, and to define cultural, social, or religious status within a specific community. The mayoral chains worn by our Mayor is one such example.
Elfi Spiewack’s exhibition Splendour Moot combines materials of high and low value. During the summer period visitors are invited to make their own unique adornment from recycled materials, including bottle caps, old beads, buttons and much more.


Programme runs from 16 December—21 January

Daily 10:00am – 4:00pm. Free and for all ages.
