Your networking opportunity
Join the WMMD team at 10.30am for a half hour of Coffee and Chatter.
It’s your chance to share what’s happening at your museum, learn what your colleagues across the sector are doing in their heritage organisations, ask the WMMD team for advice and hear about the latest sector guidance and news.
During this Coffee and Chatter we will be joined by Frances Turner FHEA. PGCPL. Senior Lecturer, Bath School of Design and David Nash, Curator of Social History and Principal Curator for The Tickenhill Trust, Museums Worcestershire for two short presentations on collaborative projects which explore the history, collections and significance of the glove industry.
Frances will present the Glove Network, an AHRC funded project which has brought together the University of Bath, museums, manufacturers, designers and leather/ tannery specialists with expert knowledge of the manufacturing of gloves, materials, embellishment and conservation since February 2020. The project aims to raise awareness of the collections and manufacturing in an under-researched area. www.theglovenetwork.co.uk
David will present the ‘Glove Affair’ 2019-2022, a Museums Worcestershire project funded by the Esme Fairbairn Foundation. This community-based project reconnects people to their past, promotes better understanding of Worcester’s international significance in the gloving industry and leaves a legacy of glove making in the county in which it once thrived.
Grab your morning cuppa, exchange ideas and catch up with some friendly faces.
