Now available to visit online here! A celebration of the heritage of Chippenham and the surrounding area, Loose Threads is a collaborative exhibition between Chippenham Museum and Bath Textile Artists.


The exhibition centres on the Don Little Collection. Donald Little lived in Chippenham his entire life and bequeathed to Chippenham Museum his vast collection of postcards, photographs and ephemera relating to the town. Alongside the collection will be works especially created by the Bath Textile Artists in response to different parts of the collection as diverse as Goss crested china, World War One postcards and Don’s personal family photographs.


Chippenham Museum has launched two online talks and a February half term activity linked to the exhibition – all free to enjoy here from home until the museum can re-open again.


Chippenham Museum is a Chippenham Town Council facility. When back open, the museum is free entry with two floors of galleries and level access throughout. Open 10am – 4pm every day except Sunday.
