Designer and Maker, Emma Carlow, joins Pollock's to create her latest "Make Believe Museum Shop". During lockdown, Emma spent her time researching folk art, hoping to find fresh inspiration for her work and gain a greater understanding of other cultures. Her research led her to the questions, "What would a folk museum shop be like and what would I like to buy there?". This became the theme for an exhibition held in September 2020 at the Meiklejohn Gallery in Lewes "My Make Believe Museum Shop".


Over the next few months Emma will do the same in response to our unique collection creating designs, objects and artworks culminating in a line of products which will be displayed and sold in our Museum toyshop alongside some workshops! Line up below. Choose the date and time you'd like and use the calendar to book!
