Heritage Weekend

This weekend is Heritage Weekend and it seemed the perfect moment to install the photographs I took of the volunteers at White Mill during the spring.  These images are paired with archive photographs from the Imperial War Museum of women at work on the land and in factories during WW1.

So today I walked round the Mill with the curator and Neil and we discussed where and how to slot these images (which will be framed) into the existing collection.  It was especially lovely to visit today as it was a chance to meet up with all the volunteers and get their opinions on where to site the work and to catch up and with them after the summer.

I’ll be at White Mill on Sunday between 10.30 and 5.30 to get feedback from visitors and volunteers and see how these images can open dicussion about the artefacts, WW1 and of course the wonderful work the volunteers do to keep this gem alive.

Sundays is also an opportunity to carry on with the great Sock Blanket that Clare, Rosie and Linda initiated at the Bakers, Makers & Brewers Fair in May, so if you fancy a spot of sewing pay us a visit – rumour has it there’s tea and biscuits!
