Abbey House objects inspire artists

The Adult Art Group at Abbey House have been seeking inspiration from the museum's varied and curious collections for many a year. Once a month, under the skilled guidance of local artist Gilly Stephenson, the group meets at the museum and are presented with a selection of objects drawn from the Abbey House displays to stir their creative joices. Here is some of work the group has produced recently:
