Meet our Spring Artist in Residence at The Museum in the Park
Annie Hutchinson, also known as 'The Little Wren House Factory', is our artist residence during Spring and we invite you come and meet Annie and see the Museum in a different light.
Annie Hutchinson, also known as 'The Little Wren House Factory', is a textile Artist based in Stroud and has been making textile figures using vintage materials and trinkets for a number of years.
During Spring 2016, Annie has been invited to spend time at The Museum in the Park as Artist in Residence. The aim of the residency is to study and make a body of work inspired by the Museum Collections, demonstrating that a conversation between artefact and art offers something interesting, exciting and magical to the visiting public. She has found herself particularly drawn to stories of the forgotten, marginalised ‘ordinary folk' whose names will never appear in the history books, as well as some of the Museum's many curious and intriguing artefacts.
Annie can be found working in the Museum's Collectors' Room on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 10am and 2pm. Additionally, during the Textile Festival Select Trail on the weekends of the 7th and 8th, 14th and 15th May, Annie can be found exhibiting her work at the Museum. She will also be in residence on the evening of Friday 13th May from 8pm to 10pm, as part of a special ‘Museums at Night' out-of-hours opening. Come and meet Annie and see the Museum in a different light.
