Objects of Desire – Online Exhibition

The Smithy was due to open at Easter, but has had to remain closed for the foreseeable future while we’re on lockdown.

Our exhibition this year, Objects of Desire, looks at the different things people collect and their reasons for doing so. As we can’t share this with you yet, we thought we would invite you to share your collections with us so we can create an online exhibition we can all enjoy from the safety and comfort of home!

Objects of Desire - What do you collect? Be part of our online exhibition!

We would love to hear what you collect and why – please get in touch with your story and some photos of your collection for us to share online. You can even remain anonymous if you so wish.
