Meet the Artist and Poet, Kate Eggleston-Wirtz

At our Meet the Artist workshops not only will you get an introduction to the artist’s most recent work, you’ll also have the opportunity to experiment and create your own artwork inspired by their practice and the museum’s collections.

We work with many artists to bring engaging programmes to the museum and explore the collections/objects in new ways; and likewise the museum collections are an inspiration to artists.

In this Meet the Artist, you’ll discover, experiment and create with artist and poet, Kate Eggleston-Wirtz.

Kate’s work specialises in three-dimensional assemblage art collage focusing on heritage – she tells stories with objects, connecting communities and generations through assemblage and collage and helping others achieve their own creative vision.

Kate will be sharing some examples of her nature inspired upcycling work and inviting participants to get hands on and create some artworks of their own.

You can help us care for our collections and bring joy and inspiration to people in Manchester and beyond

As one of the UK’s largest university museums, we care for over 4.5 million objects, with an internationally-important collection spanning from Archaeology to Zoology, and nearly everything in between. We work with communities, support university students and schools in Manchester and beyond and we are a free, inclusive museum for all. But we need your help. Every object we care for, exhibition, school visit and community event comes at a cost, and you can help make the museum as ambitious and impactful as possible.
