Please join Maureen Peters, Curator of History at The Rooms, for a presentation about the evolution of design of Grenfell Mats. From their humble beginnings as a cottage industry to the highly collectible pieces of art, this talk will use examples from the collection and patterns from our archives to take you through the history of design of the Grenfell Industries mats. After the talk, please have a look at our exhibition, Loops to Live By in the Level 4 art gallery.
