We are working with The Perky Painter to find out just who has been sitting in our chairs!

Taking inspiration from our vast and varied chair collection across Leeds Museums & Galleries, we invite you to get involved with our community drawing project, all about sitting down!

The Challenge

– Visit any Leeds Museums and Galleries site

– Pick your favourite chair from the collections

– Photograph or sketch your chair

– Imagine ‘Who’s been sitting in my chair?’

– Draw your chair and historic sitter

– Share your drawings and photos with us through social media with the hashtag #MyChairLeeds
