The Craft of Music

8 Sep – 4 Nov 2018

Roof Gallery

Have you ever wondered how a musical instrument is made? What does a £5,000 guitar look like and what makes it worth that much? Or how were the instruments that entertained Henry VIII constructed?

Join us for Bagpipes, Crumhorns, Shawms, Lutes, Citterns, Guitars, Violins and many more instruments that you may know but can’t pronounce, lovingly made by British and local craftspeople.

Linked to this exhibition we are delighted to have talks and performances from Sonophilia Festival, Lincolnshire’s Celebration of Sound. Come and find out how craft influences the sound of music.
