Students and lecturers from the Jewellery Design course at Central Saint Martins developed new work exploring the feelings the Museum’s Collection elicits
Using the Museum Collection and Founding Hospital archives as inspiration, eight students and three lecturers from the BA Jewellery Design course at Central Saint Martins developed new work. Each maker produced a creative response that expressed the conflicting feelings the Collection elicits – of abandonment and belonging, uniformity and individuality, the loss of identity and the chance for a new life. As well as an exhibition, two workshops were developed and delivered to two secondary schools in Camden. This project was funded by Share Academy.
