Pupil’s creative work

    An important part of our exhibition shows the important creative work produced by pupils from Padgate Academy in Warrington and Oldfield Primary School in Chester after undertaking handling sessions with the medieval and early modern objects used for our exhibitions. After handling the objects, pupils were asked to select one object they had connected with the most, to imagine its story, who might have manufactured or used it, or where it might have been used or travelled. Here you can see the striking results of the pupil’s work on paper plates which helped to inform the work of University academics and educationalists.
