Curator in Residence 2016

9th February 2016 Jacob Moss1,811 views

During the Summer of 2016, The Fan Museum’s curators will be in residence to offer short talks on the museum’s collections and fan handling sessions.


The Fan Museum will offer visitors an insight into the displays and collections with short talks and other activities.  These will cover a range of themes including the art of fan painting, an Elizabethan folding fan and highlights from the museum’s rotating schedule of temporary exhibitions.

Short talks/handling sessions will be given on the hour every hour from 13.00hrs onwards.  A schedule will be available online prior to each event.

Due to private functions, there will be no ‘Curator in Residence’ event for May 2016.  The next event will take place on Saturday 18 June 2016.
