After weeks of hard work by all members of the Young Explainer’s Gallery Interpretation team, the new Cottonian Adult’s Guide is in its final stages and nearing completion. Over the last couple of months we have all been busy researching into different aspects of the collection, whether that has been looking into the individual stories of pieces or searching out wider themes that run through our collection. We have come up with a wealth of information.

As well as researching, our team have been busy finding ways to make the information more accessible to a wider audience. As a result, we have created a guide that uses various formats to present our information including thematic spreads, a creative writing piece and interviews!

Alongside our Adult’s Guide, the Gallery Interpretation team have been working hard on creating an activity guide for children. Along with activities and snippets of information, the Children’s Guide shall also include a short story and some illustrations!
