Bite Size Talk: Glove Affair – Worcester’s Hand in the Gloving Industry

Tuesday 10 March 2020, 1 – 1.30pm

Join Museums Worcestershire’s curators on the 2nd Tuesday of each month for a series of talks about the collections.

This edition will focus on Worcester’s hand in the global gloving industry. Our collections team have been working hard behind the scenes to catalogue our gloving collections so that we can send our world-class collection of gloving-related historic objects out on the road.  Find out what they have found and how we will be using this to engage Worcester’s community in local history.

Bite size talks are 30 mins, starting at 1pm and cost £3 per person. Please book your tickets at the Art Gallery desk or call 01905 25371.
