    THE BLACK AND WHITE HOUSE MUSEUM, HEREFORD (c.1640)

     

    We gave this Jacobean timber-framed town house an interactive facelift, recreating three rooms as they might have appeared in about 1640. Full sets of wall hangings included painted cloths telling the story of the Prodigal Son, closely based on contemporary wall paintings. They may be the only set of replica figurative painted cloths produced in modern times. Replica furnishings featured fully dressed 'interactive' beds for visitors to try out. We also supplied display costumes and a range of 1640s dressing up clothes, researched and commissioned new interpretation panels, produced a dramatised virtual tour and video, and wrote a new guidebook.
