New greetings cards based on our collections
We are pleased to be able to offer these greeting cards for sale to visitors and from our website which are based on some of the textile banners in our collection. Each card comes with a green recycled paper envelope.
The banners have been photographed at high resolution as these items are fragile and difficult to display for extended periods. The banners reflect the proud history of local societies and guilds and in most cases were hand stitched and painted by the members to carry in solidarity at strikes, protests and community events.
Purchase price includes the cost of UK postage only (If you require postage outside of the UK please contact [email protected] to discuss). We also have each of these cards available individually which can be purchased on site at the museum.
