Karen Watts - Senior Curator of Armour & Art, Royal Armouries

Explore the art of the armourer in this unique session about the decoration of armour in the 16th century.

Join our expert curator to handle original examples of Renaissance armour showing techniques such as engraving, etching, gilding, embossing, damascening and bluing.

Discover how knights ‘dressed to impress’ with rich ornamentation, unusual scenes and surprising images to inspire them in battle, parade and tournament.

  • Lunch is not provided, but there is a bistro and a café plus a picnic area in the Museum.
