Join us for an informal, sociable online session exploring art through audio-description and conversation for participants with a visual impairment. In this session, we will explore some of the smallest works of art in the collection and hear the fascinating stories behind them, including that of artist Sarah Biffin, who painted using a brush held between her teeth.

Access to this session will be via Zoom. A telephone number, link and password will be sent out before the session.
