Explore RAMM’s fabulous decorative arts collection.
This afternoon workshop aims to uncover some of the glittering secrets behind RAMM’s decorative arts collection which has many beautiful objects to suit a range of tastes and interests. The workshop will look at a range of silver objects from the time of the Tudors to those made in the splendour of Exeter’s ‘Golden Age’. A close look at some work by Exeter goldsmith Richard Hilliard (who was father to the famous Elizabethan miniaturist, Nicholas Hilliard) will also feature in the workshop.
