Cutty Sark – Fantastical Tea Museum
Cutty Sark is perhaps the most famous tea clipper in history which made it all the more fitting as a location for Doctor Geof’s Fantastical Steampunk Tea Museum in 2014.
Discovery Museum – Fabricating Histories
Fabricating Histories at The Discovery Museum focused on alternative history inspired by the weirder inventions of the 19th Century, the centrepiece of which was a specially commissioned 60ft reimagining of the Turbinia – the first steam turbine powered steamship – as powered by the mythical North East creature the Lambton Worm
Funded by the Arts Council the project was a joint venture between Northumbria University and The Discovery Museum and featured five contemporary artists and designers as well as previously unseen objects and artefacts from the collections of Tyne and Wear Museums.
Kirkstall Art Trail
In 2019, Doctor Geof joined the well-loved Kirkstall Art Trail, setting the Tea Museum up in the historical ruins of Kirkstall Abbey. As a local exhibition celebrating artists based in the Kirkstall and West Leeds area, the Art Trail offered the chance for new audiences to see both the Tea Museum and Doctor Geof’s art.
