Today we had staff training on object conservation. This is John, our Volunteer Coordinator Intern, learning how to conserve silverware. John is working with us as a part of the MGS Interns scheme.

We also learned how to clean objects made from other materials such as wood and paper and how to wrap objects for transport.

 

About edinburghmuseumsoutreach

I'm the Outreach & Access Manager at Edinburgh Museums & Galleries (the museums service of the City of Edinburgh Council). I take the museums out to community groups and schools. I really enjoy meeting lots of people of different ages and backgrounds and helping them connect with our collections. I love showing people some of the amazing objects that we hold and I like helping them to remember the past or to create something amazing.
