This exhibition explores how it has inspired two specific artists and craftspeople: George Bain and Thomas Keyes.

We are extremely excited by the news that Groam House Museum has been successful in its application for grants to develop the George Bain Collection. Funding from Museums Galleries Scotland and Creative Scotland is enabling the museum to work with volunteers and specialists to digitise the Collection, develop outreach events, and create an interactive website to promote further study and use around the globe.
Groam House Museum is currently recruiting new volunteers to help with the day-to-day running of the museum.
Joining the volunteer team is an excellent way of making friends and enjoying the experience in the museum. There are also special benefits for volunteers, including coffee mornings, concessions, use of the museum library and occasional outings.
