Do you like practical, manual tasks? Are you interested in museum layouts?
By joining the Quaker Tapestry Museum as an Exhibition Display volunteer, you will assist the team with practical tasks related to the re-arrangement of the museum exhibition space and the organisation of the exhibition stores.
This would suit someone who enjoys practical tasks and who is happy to assist with moving objects around. DIY and joinery skills are a bonus but are non-essential. If you are interested in the layout of museums, get in contact with us!
- Get hands-on experience re-hanging an exhibition display at the Quaker Tapestry
- Gain an insight into how museums install their displays
- Join a community of friendly people
Dates and Availability
This role would initially take place in February, but there is the potential to stay on and assist with the installation of their new temporary exhibitions in the spring. The frequency of this role is flexible, but we would suggest one half-day a week (3-4 hours per session).
About the Quaker Tapestry Museum
350 years of social history and Quaker stories are brought to life in more than 40 vibrant embroidered panels, housed within this architecturally stunning and original Georgian Meeting House in the traditional Lakeland market town of Kendal.
Contact email@example.com or 07442 972 270 for more information about how we can personally support you in this role.
Nb. Volunteers would benefit in this role if they have reasonable physical strength to assist with moving temporary walls and display cases in storage from one location to another, and if they were comfortable with climbing stairs. However, the Quaker Tapestry Museum is committed to ensuring good accessibility for all volunteers, so these are not requirements in order to be an exhibition display volunteer with us.
