Experiment, Experience and Enchant: Knowledge sharing between museums and contemporary craft
This event will bring together archaeologists, conservators and curators, along with contemporary craft artists and makers – including Michael Eden, Simone ten Hompel and Silvia Weidenbach – to consider how knowledge-sharing between these two fields allows us to re-evaluate the past.
The event will culminate in an exclusive preview of the new Glenmorangie Commission by silversmith Simone ten Hompel. Working directly with our early medieval collections and our Creating Scotland research project, Simone has created a new piece of contemporary metal artwork, which will be displayed in our Grand Gallery for the preview.
This event is generously supported by The Glenmorangie Company.
