And what a home it is!
The lovely people at the Weald and Downland Museum have agreed to host the exhibition for the whole of August 2014 in their beautiful Downland Gridshell. It’s an amazing structure to spend some time in (I would personally love to live in it!).
Hopefully, the Gridshell will be buzzing for that month - the Idea is to have an exciting programme of events, mixing photos, artefacts and making.
