Muse : Makers in Museums
Muse: Makers in Museums is a project that is supporting eight artists to make new work in response to the unique collections to be found in the small community museums of Devon and Somerset. Since May 2017 the artists have been working with local groups to explore the collections, and have been developing inspirational work in a range of craft media.
