A pop-up exhibition by the Grosvenor Museum and University of Chester of medieval and early modern objects excavated in and around Chester.
In this 2 hour creative workshop you will get the rare chance to handle unseen everyday objects from the past: shoes, keys, tiles, pottery, ceramics, rings, pilgrim badges and devotional tokens and discover the stories they have to tell.
This workshop has been designed for anyone aged 14 – 140 who is fascinated by history and is interested in creating a creative response to the objects – you might love to write poetry, short stories or to create illustrations based on the objects you have handled.
The workshop will be led by Katherine Wilson (University of Chester, Associate Professor of Later Medieval European History) and Liz Montgomery (Grosvenor Museum, Senior Curator of the Grosvenor Museum).
