24 January 2019 - 02 June 2019

Pulling stories off the page into artworks has a long tradition, from the paintings in Bede’s Codex Amiatinus – the oldest complete Latin Bible in existence, through to modern day film and TV adaptations.

Shirt Tales is a free exhibition by Artist and Tailor Richard Bliss. Richard has designed and hand made five shirts that capture the feelings and ideas that he experienced when reading the work of five authors from the Dark Ages through to the present day. Richard selected the Venerable Bede, Phillis Wheatley, Lewis Carroll, Elinor Brent-Dyer and Julia Darling as the writers who he wanted to explore further, writers who broke convention and can inspire us all.
