New exhibition launched at museum

A Mansfield Metal Box Artwork Exhibition is up and running at Mansfield Museum.

It can be seen until October 31. This is a unique opportunity to see work by the artists and designers at the Metal Box Factory. Over 100 pieces of work line the walls at Mansfield Museum and demonstrate just how talented this sometimes over looked area of the tin manufacturing process were. Before the internet, artists had to use books and photographs to produce intricate designs for the tins, often working to tight timescales.

There is also a chance to have a go at designing your own tin.
