Abbot Hall Volunteer Gallery Invigilators
We are looking for volunteers to help invigilate Abbot Hall’s lively exhibitions programme. This is a great opportunity to become part of a small friendly team and to gain an insight into the daily running of an important regional art gallery.
Volunteer invigilators are an essential component of the exhibitions programme and allow Abbot Hall to continue to borrow works of international significance from key institutions and private lenders. Invigilators play a vital role in providing a warm welcome to visitors to the gallery, and a friendly and communicative manner when dealing with the public is important, therefore, as is an interest in art.
Conservation Cleaning Volunteer, Blackwell
We are looking for two volunteers to help us deliver a preventative conservation routine at Blackwell. This will be an ongoing regular role. This is a great opportunity to become part of a small friendly team and to gain an insight into the daily operation of an Arts and Crafts House.
Garden Volunteer, Blackwell
We are looking to recruit two volunteers who are passionate about gardening and meeting the public.
You will be based at Blackwell, The Arts & Crafts House, Bowness-on-Windermere, Cumbria. The gardens at Blackwell were designed by Thomas Mawson, renowned Cumbrian Arts and Crafts garden designer. The gardens are maintained by a gardening contractor and we are looking for volunteers to augment this provision by providing gardening duties outside of the contractor's weekly visit.
Visitor Engagement Volunteer, Blackwell
Are you passionate about history and heritage? Do you enjoy meeting people? Help us to bring Blackwell's historic Arts and Crafts rooms to life, as you welcome visitors and share fascinating stories about the house and those who lived and worked here.Visitor Engagement Volunteers are our ambassadors - the public face of Blackwell - so volunteers need to be warm, friendly and approachable. You will meander around the house and welcome visitors, answer visitors' questions and chat to them about our history.
If you are confident enough, we will also train you in delivering guided tours of the house to groups. Volunteers will receive full training and detailed information packs about the Blackwell's history.
