How do you manage the contents of a medical kit donation or handle a WW2 gas mask? What happens with historic objects containing mercury, lead or asbestos? Museums collections are not always as friendly as they may seem!
Join Collections Care Officer, Gwen Thomas, Curator, Gemma Henderson and Auld Reekie Retold Project Manager, Nico Tyack as they share some of the riskiest objects in our collections. We will look at what they are, how they came into our collections and some of the hazards involved in managing them.
If you have a heritage item or heirloom at home that you know may pose a hazard, why not tell us about it?
Please note this workshop is not about restoration of objects.
The session is free to attend and open to all, but booking is required.
