The Fan Museum provides a programme of occasional lectures delivered by the Museum’s curatorial staff and occasional guest speakers. Set within the intimate surrounds of the Museum’s painted Orangery.

Curator in Residence

Usually taking place on the afternoon of the penultimate Saturday of each month, join the Museum’s expert curatorial staff for a range of free-to-attend talks highlighting objects featured within the permanent display and temporary exhibitions.

Fan Making Workshops

We hold regular fan making workshops on the first Saturday afternoon of each month. These sessions are conducted by an experienced tutor who will not only provide expert guidance, but also a wealth of knowledge about the history and craft of fans.

Our fan making classes are pencilled to recommence in July 2022 and we aim to release booking information in advance – please keep an eye on our website and social media channels for more information.
