Installing objects and 3d design
We have begun to work on the final positions of some objects in the Collections gallery cases. Whilst we are still cleaning objects to go into the cases, some of them now contain all of their objects. This means we can begin fiddling around with them to work out their final positions and think about how to position them for visual appeal and safety for the objects. Various types of mounts will need to be made – plastazote wedges, wooden and acrylic blocks and specialised “bespoke” mounts. We have been working with conservation and our technician, Dave, to find the best solutions for each case and each object. Some of the results are shown in the photos. The wooden mounts now need to be painted – watch your emails for a task volunteering opportunity in the near future!
Long Shop visit
Today trustees, staff and volunteers from The Long Shop Museum in Leiston visited. They are at the beginning of developing their own HLF application so they came to see what we had done and what they could learn from it. They also gave us some really useful feedback on our new displays.
