#BehindtheArt for #MuseumWeek

Museum of carpet

Today’s #MuseumWeek theme on Twitter is #BehindtheArt.  All over the world, curators and collections staff are showing images from behind the scenes.

We thought you might like to see a few shots of how it looked behind the scenes here at Stour Mill before we opened in 2012; before the builders got to work on creating the  new home of the Museum of Carpet.  Hard to believe these were taken only 3 years ago!

What they reveal now is the wonderful amount of light in the building, even on a gloomy day: essential to the weaving industry in order to reduce the costs and hazards of lighting before the days of electricity.
