Join us online for the launch of Highland Threads, an innovative online exhibition exploring the history of people in northern Scotland.
1 April 2021 | 3pm
Fourteen museums from across the Highlands are taking part in Highland Threads. The virtual exhibition showcases a treasured costume from each museum's collection alongside stories of the people who made the cloth, who wore the clothes and where they were produced.
Nicola Henderson and Helen Avenell from Museums and Heritage Highlands will introduce the exhibition and discuss how the project evolved, the process of collaboration and the benefits of working in partnership with museums across the Highlands. There will also be many guest speakers talking about the costumes, the stories and how the project will support Highland heritage.
Highland Threads is produced by Museums and Heritage Highland, a charity formed in 2019 to promote collaborative working and provide a supportive voice for the Highlands' heritage sector, and is supported by National Lottery Heritage Fund.
Partner museums: Glencoe Museum, Inverness Museum & Art Gallery, Gairloch Museum, Ullapool Museum, Grantown Museum, West Highland Museum, Highland Museum of Childhood, Castlehill Heritage Centre, Tain through Time, Wick Heritage Museum, Highland Folk Museum, Groam House Museum, Strathnaver Museum and Dornoch Historylinks.
