We want to hear from local collectors keen to take part in an exhibition of their prize possessions  at the Egg Factory!

This idea for an exhibition has been initiated by Egg Factory member Lizzie Lockhart who has numerous collections, including over 500 printed tissue papers that you find wrapped round oranges and 63 starburst clocks.

We’re keen to hear from serious collectors of objects and things that other people haven’t thought about collecting.  So it might be a collection of coat hangers, stripy string, lightbulbs, photos of men with moustaches, pencil stubs, gig tickets or even hand written shopping lists.

Egg factory member,  Lizzie Lockhart said: “As a serious collector myself I thought there was a need to have an informal show where we could talk about what drives people to create their collections and practical issues like whether people have their own special way of displaying their objects.… we wanted to create a fun event where people could see some really unusual, but fascinating, collections and find more about them.”

Any collectors no matter how offbeat will be considered for the exhibition. One thing that links all collections is that they are created through a mix of love and expertise so spectacular and unusual entries are encouraged!

Space at the Egg Factory is limited so If you would like your collection to be considered for this exhibition send a short note explaining what you collect and why – with some photos if possible –  to helen@hbaf.co.uk by 28 April
