Volunteers sat at tables with art cards

Last weekend, staff from The Courtauld were thrilled to join colleagues at Ulster Museum to run a variety of activities themed around our current exhibition Bloomsbury: A Collective.

Over two jam-packed days, there were interactive sessions for volunteers, guided tours of the exhibition for members of the public, and a drop-in family day.

Volunteers from across National Museums NI sites, spent a full day with Fran Herrick from The Courtauld’s education team, finding out more about Art History and the Bloomsbury exhibition, and having a go at getting creative themselves with some drawing and printing based on the collections of Ulster Museum and The Courtauld.

On Saturday, younger visitors made all kinds of fantastic stamps inspired by Omega workshop and Bloomsbury designs, and printed them into their own Omega books, much like the book of woodblock prints featured in the exhibition.

Upcoming events include an audio described informal visit for anyone experiencing sight loss, and a series of online discussions featuring experts and artists inspired by the Bloomsbury Group.

Bloomsbury: A Collective is open at Ulster Museum until 16th October 2022. You can find out more on the Ulster Museum website.
