    Explore Your Archive: Looking back at 2015 and 2016 launch

    • 19th November 2016

    Last year Explore Your Archive week saw us feature some extraordinary people with links to Worcestershire. As part of this we held an exhibition of some of the archives and held a successful drop in day featuring talks about the individuals we featured.

     

    During the course of the day it was wonderful to meet some of the relatives of Harry Martin, one of our unsung heroes, who was a talented painter with Worcester Porcelain before the First World War.

    One of the other people featured was the painter Joseph Blackburn.After the campaign finished we received feedback internationally and our work was included in Art History News. The DNB entry for Joseph Blackburn is also in the process of being updated due to the findings we made for Explore Your Archive.

     

    Join us this year for Explore Your Archive 2016 where from now until November 27th we will feature insights from our archives. Follow our blog and twitter page during the course of the week to keep up to date.
