Last week I went to visit one of our Culture& trainees, Chloe, at London South East College Bexley to observe her delivering workshop for the college’s transition day. Chloe is completing her traineeship at the Prince Philip Maritime Collections Centre, Royal Museums Greenwich in the collections care and conservation team.
Chloe and her colleague Helen were at the college to deliver a pop up sensory learning stall and workshop to advertise their soon to be launch sensory social club for young people 16+ to come to at the Collections Centre, starting in September. Chloe prepared information about all the pests and bugs that can eat away at items in a museum collection and also ran a gold leaf gilding activity. She’s doing a fantastic job.
