Yesterday we had a great time at the Museum of London Docklands, running a TextWorkshop in their fabulous conference room overlooking the Thames.
We unveiled our newly updated writing tips and some sparkly new resources, which went down well – one delegate said ‘They’re definitely going up on my office wall when I get back.’
Sue Neaves, Learning Programme Manager at the museum, gave us an eye-opening tour of the galleries, including the London, Sugar and Slavery gallery which takes an uncompromising look at the human cost of the British empire’s expansion.
We were delighted by the atmosphere and participation during the workshop, and delegates told us:
‘Great day, very inspiring, I feel energised to write better text.’
‘I learned that writing great text isn’t a secret art.’
‘I feel like I have the tools and techniques to make a difference from boring text.’
‘Brilliant course. You had my full attention all the way through.’
Our next course is on Writing text for trails, on 6th April at the Herbert Art Gallery and Museum in Coventry. Before that we’re working in-house with the Science Museum and the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust.
