The panels, usually housed at Beamish Museum, will be on display at St Mary’s for the duration of the GEoN. During the exhibition Guild members will be on hand on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1pm to demonstrate their skills and guide visitors to have a go and learn more about this wonderful art. FREE entry.
