The Human Touch Opens at the Fitzwilliam Museum

This exhibition at the Fitzwilliam that explores touch, has opened. There are many extraordinary artists displayed in this fascinating exhibition – including: Michelangelo, Rembrandt, Hogarth, Turner, Rodin, Degas, Frank Auerbach, Richard Long, and many more. We really enjoyed creating a sensory set of displays where the craft of making and tactility is explored throughout the displays. We were also thrilled to be invited to make a film about the exhibition’s themes that features at the Fitzwilliam. Read more about the exhibition here

The first phase of re-design work encompassed the conservation and reinterpretation of Dove Cottage itself, where William and Dorothy once lived, plus the design of a new identity for Wordsworth Grasmere and the scheme’s signage and wayfinding.
