Friendship Counterpane Exhibition
To display a historic nineteenth century 'Friendship' counterpane and develop an exhibition and associated educational activities. The counterpane provides a remarkable historic, artistic and social record. The stories contained within its panels, as well as those of the women who created it, provide a fascinating picture of the social history of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. This work will help to conserve an important part of our culture, and disseminate knowledge about this period of history to a wide range of people.
