Each week we take a look at what’s been going on with Norfolk’s Teaching Museum Trainees. Today we see Sue, Project management trainee at Gressenhall https://nmsteachingmuseum.wordpress.com/
In the project management office we are working hard to get everything in place for the new year, when our new exhibition will begin to be installed.
I have been sourcing replicas for the new displays and have recently taken delivery of these lovely handmade wooden plates, which are a copy of our workhouse original.
I have also been trying to locate an old wheelbarrow, a stoke pottery plate, an undertakers measuring stick and a Victorian prosthetic leg. Good job I enjoy a challenge!
Meanwhile, our training continues to take us to hidden places. Recently we visited the undercroft at the Museum of Norwich – a beautiful space.
It was a big day for my colleague Lawrence yesterday, as he got to drive a Big White Van. It is probably one of biggest challenges of his traineeship so far!
He needed a 4m long vehicle to transport an old map from storage at the archive center to a photographer in order for it to be photographed for reproduction for our new ‘Voices’ project.
