With Sue Stanton and Nicky Lobaton, Conservation Team at the Ashmolean
Join the Ashmolean's Conservation Team for an in-depth, behind the scenes tour of , Colour Revolution: Victorian Art, Fashion, & Design.
While the exhibition displays the colour and vibrancy which exploded in Victorian society, this intimate, after-hours tour reveals how the Ashmolean's Conservation Team worked to bring those colourful objects into the Museum’s galleries.
