Why have a poster on your wall when you can have a real work of art?

Ever since Kettle’s Yard was created, students have been borrowing works of art from the collection. Every year, we invite full time students at Anglia Ruskin and Cambridge University to borrow pictures, giving them a bit of Kettle’s Yard to take home with them.

After pausing the scheme during the pandemic, we will be running the Student Picture Loan Scheme once again for the 2021-2022 academic year.

This year, in order to maintain social distancing, students are required to sign up for a timed slot in order to come and select a picture (1 per person).

Book your free timed slot here

Please note that booking a slot does not reserve a particular picture. Pictures will still be selected in person on a first come first served basis. 

As always, the best way to find out the latest news from Kettle’s Yard is to sign up to our mailing list and to follow us on Twitter and Instagram.

How it works

  • £20 per picture for the academic year
  • £30 refundable deposit per picture
  • Payment by card only
  • Please bring your Student ID or proof of enrolment
  • Please bring your booking confirmation
