Crafts of the Punjab - private view for teachers

Published Monday, 09 October 2017

For thousands of years, the Punjab region of the Indian subcontinent has been a cultural crossroad, resulting in a rich and vibrant legacy of arts and crafts.

Using the exceptional collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum, Crafts of the Punjab (20 October 2017 - 21 January 2018) has been created especially for the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum, and presents the extensive range of arts and crafts made across the area in the 19th century. Featuring never before exhibited objects, famous artefacts and unique masterpieces of craft, this is a rare opportunity to view these stunning works outside London.

Join us for light refreshments and an exclusive tour for teachers and find out about the workshops available for school groups. Suitable for all key stages and all teachers and teaching assistants are welcome.

Booking essential, please contact, 024 7623 4271

This exhibition has been organised by the V&A, London, in collaboration with the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum. The private view is part of the Museums & Schools programme, funded by the DFE through Arts Council England and has been supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
