Alfred Herbert Art Gallery Coventry
The Herbert group has finished off a series of projects including making exhibit covers/curtains for the Natural History store, improved padded coat hangers for the dress store and making cushions to support books when they are accessed from the collection.
The museum displayed an exhibition about Children’s Television from the 50s onwards. We helped out with the ‘Hands on’ artefacts for pre school visitors based on the ‘Rainbow’ theme – lots of tactile clouds, rainbow banners and filling huge floor cushions with polystyrene beads -which is a whole story in itself !
Future activities may include making further calico bags for parasols and swords and checking and amending computer records of the collection.
