Forth and Fish

Today I ran a session for Knots & Crosses Youth Club (KCYC), a group run by SCORE Scotland.

We explored the history and geography of the Firth of Forth by looking at old maps, objects and artworks. One brave volunteer even dressed as a fishwife!

We then created a group artwork based on some of the pieces in ‘The Artist and the Sea’ exhibition.



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.
