Study Centre

A space for individual research and group learning that houses some of the most significant works from our collection

The Study Centre is where you can study and enjoy the Whitworth’s outstanding collections of works of art on paper (including watercolours, drawings and prints), textiles, wallpapers and smaller groups of oils and sculpture.

Due to the ongoing impact of Covid-19, the Study Centre is currently closed to both individual researchers and for group visits. We hope to reinstate this service from January 2022.

Please contact the relevant member of our curatorial team (listed below) with a specific enquiry.
