We have received enquiries about the autumn #COVID-19 booster for people with #epilepsy. The good news is that people with epilepsy yet again are included in the at risk group making them eligible for the autumn booster. More info can be found here: ow.ly/HHTr50Kgz0I

It’s with great sadness that we share the passing of Raymond Briggs. Raymond’s best-known work is The Snowman, a pioneering picture book, a radical and beautiful innovation: a picture book without words. All of us who had the privilege of working with him will miss him.

Looms were the precursor to computers. Textile history matters.
Replying to @LeedsMuseums
The Dobby loom was a gamechanger for mechanical production! It used holes in cards, or pegs, which told the device when to raise or lower the threads. This meant that weaving became faster and cheaper, because it reduced the labour it needed from slow and expensive humans.

To a new Celtic symbolism? βž°πŸ”± In Alan Davie's work To A Celtic Spirit and Dovecot tapestry interpretation, we see symbols spanning times and cultures. For example, the little 'mounds' in this tapestry sample derive from ancient gravestones in northern France. #tapestry
