Over the past few months we have been lucky enough to have several visits from a wonderful group of cultural ambassadors from Medlock Primary School. The children range from Year 1-6 and have been curating one of the museum’s more hidden cases in the school and family picnic area in the basement.
The children studied the style of display cases around the museum, thinking about colour, structure, object positioning as well as themes that are illustrated within the displays.
The fantastic group then selected 10 objects that they were most intrigued by and went about developing themes and making big decisions about how the case would actually look; from the colour of paint used to the way objects were to be positioned.
Here’s a little look behind the scenes of what’s been happening so far. Watch this space as the case enters the final stages of installation…
Well done to all the cultural ambassadors at Medlock Primary School and keep up the good work! We can’t wait to see the next stages of all your hard work!
