Exhibitions & Events

Exhibitions are an essential aspect of our work to provide access to the Collection. They are held annually at the Böd focussing on a theme related to Shetland Textiles, and change every year. A recent exhibition took a look at colour in the Collection from an artist’s perspective. 

This years exhibition is called ‘New Aquisitions’ showcasing items added to the collection in the last four years. We aquire items in 3 ways: Donations for which we are very grateful for, Commissions usually for an exhibition when we are short of a particular item and Purchases. We were fortunate to obtain a grant from Museums Galleries Scotland to purchase four modern items, which are part of this year’s display.
