Buy a Brick: Help build the future for Gainsborough’s House

July 6, 2018 @ 9:00 am - September 23, 2022 @ 5:00 pm

Buy A Brick For Our New Galleries and Crinkle-Crankle Wall

Gainsborough’s House is undertaking a major capital project to establish a national centre for Gainsborough so more people can enjoy the special setting of the artist’s childhood home and garden. The project will double the size of the museum and refurbish and re-display the historic buildings to show more of Gainsborough’s art and to sustain and protect the museum for future generations.

With your support, we will use traditional handmade clay bricks from a local maker which will offer a stunning addition to Sudbury’s conservation area. The new wing will house three exhibition spaces and a creative learning studio with views over the Suffolk countryside. A distinctive crinkle-crankle wall will provide an attractive boundary for the garden, with its giant 400-year-old Mulberry tree, alive when Gainsborough was a boy.

By sponsoring a brick for £20 you will help to make this possible. The project will use thousands of bricks, so every sponsor will help and everyone who buys a brick will be thanked in a special commemorative book.

“Sponsoring bricks is a great way to get involved. These bricks are a local material, so we are supporting Suffolk industry as well helping to build a beautiful feature for the site. Do join in and perhaps sponsor a brick for each member of your family,”

Mark Bills, Director, Gainsborough’s House.
