In celebration of Rare Books Edinburgh 2019, Surgeons' Hall Museums and artist Susie Wilson bring you this journal making workshop inspired by RCSEd Archive's collections from the Scottish Women's Hospitals.
The Scottish Women's Hospital journal on temporary display at Surgeons' Hall Museums captures life at the camp in Ostrovo, Serbia. The journal is full of stories, poems and drawings and above all an abundance of humour. Two A-Z pieces from this journal will be used as the starting point to make a unique book. Attendees will create their own alphabetical description of the museum using drawing, printmaking, collage and text and then make into a simple book.
The workshop will run from 11:30- 16:00 with a break for lunch. No previous experience required
