Last Friday was a very exciting day. I went to the University of St Andrews to give a talk to the Museum Studies students about my work. I took out a PowerPoint of images of projects and to keep things interesting, a selection of handling objects. They seemed to enjoy dressing as fishwives; trying on our fox fur, hat and gloves and playing with some traditional games!
If you think this sounds like fun, you can find out more about borrowing the Firth of Forth, Streetgames or Leisure and Going out handling boxes on our website
Last week also saw the first of the Hidden Histories sessions led by our lovely tutor Russell. I also went to visit The Guild at St Serf’s Church, Leith to run a reminscence session with them.
My work isn’t all about getting out and about. Last Wednesday the Museums Alive volunteers were in for a planning session and today I met our newest recruit to have a chat about the project- welcome Catriona!
