There is going to be a handling session and an opportunity to discuss the photos today, Thursday 31st May 2-3pm, in Leytonstone Library foyer (up stairs).
A handling session gives you the opportunity to actually handle the photos. There are smaller prints of the photographs available as a handling collection but you also get to handle the exhibition photographs not used in this particular exhibition.You will also get to see the box museum which is given to the volunteer curators so they can create the wonderful exhibitions that you can view on this site.
Using different senses to experience works of art and artefacts is an important part of discovering what we can learn from objects. Traditionally we view them only, often behind glass, as is the case in the library exhibition. The handling session allows you to get up close, touch and smell – but no tasting please!! I will be on hand to discuss the photographs, the exhibition, the concept of Leytonstone Museum and any other questions you may have about the project.
Please do come along and say hello!
