The other week we welcomed a local Fun photography U3A group to the museum.
We put together three sets of objects, which we hoped would inspire them. We chose objects that had colour, texture, reflection and interesting shapes. The three groupings included objects designed by Tom Dixon, objects used in Mariele Neudecker’s still life project Plastics Vanitas, and objects relating to sport. We were so pleased that they agreed to share some of their snaps with us.

I think they enjoyed their short time with the museum, they were a brilliant group who were lots of fun. I do hope they come and visit us again soon.
