SAMPLED LIVES (UK EXHIBITION):
06-MAY-2017 TO 08-APR-2018

About the Event: Showcasing over 100 samplers from the Fitzwilliam Museum's excellent but often unseen collection, this display highlights the importance of samplers as documentary evidence of past lives.
These beautifully embroidererd and stitched samplers illuminate the lives of girls and women from mid-17th century English Quakers to early 20th century school pupils, encompassing their education, employment, religion, family, societal status and needlework skills. The display also highlights the individuality of each sampler, which in some cases is the only surviving document to record the existence of an ordinary young woman. The display will be accompanied by a fully-illustrated catalogue by Carol Humphrey, Honorary Keeper of Textiles, available to purchase from the Courtyard Shop and online for £19.99.
Opening Times/Charges/Phone:
Free admission Tue - Sat 10am - 5pm, Sun 12 - 5pm
Address:
