From the origins of characteristic Yorkshire creamware to the legacy of Yorkshire pottery today, immerse yourself in ceramic design. The story is told through a selection of Yorkshire Ceramics from the University of Leeds Art Collection, curated by MA Art Gallery and Museum Studies students.
Marie Hartley (1905-2006), artist, author, photographer and social historian, spent over 75 years documenting life in The Yorkshire Dales. This exhibition showcases a selection of her artworks and books, all of which hold social, cultural and historical importance. Curated by MA Art Gallery and Museum Studies students.
Can you imagine being the only woman or man on your university course? A new temporary exhibition exploring the life and work of Mary Barker, the first woman to be accepted onto the textile industries course at the University of Leeds, is currently on show at ULITA – an Archive of International Textiles.
