I don’t suppose you were expecting this, and neither was I really! My visit to Preston Park Museum was a series of lovely surprises. I turned a corner to be greeted by a sign demanding CREATE! Well, it’s not one of my strong suites, but I was quite happy to look.
Apparently Cleveland College of Art and Design had done some work for the reopening of the museum, and examples of this are on display. A theatre made of cardboard cut outs was the chief exhibit. My photos don’t do it justice but I thought it was enchanting.
Aside from the theatre, there was costume, millinery and pure quirkiness on show. Creative, for sure. It made me want to see more of the students work.
And lastly, six costumes designed for the Victorian Street.
If you saw Gracious living, Victorian style earlier this week you’ll know how much I loved the museum. My next destination will be the Victorian Street. Hopefully it won’t disappoint. I’ve already been asked if there will be cake. What self-respecting Victorian Street doesn’t have cake?
