Join our community of makers at The Prince Philip Maritime Collections Centre.

This is a club for the old and the young to share current skills and discover new ones. Our fantastic facilitator, Lucy-Anne will lead this monthly club, showcasing a specific skill or technique which could be used to look after your own objects at home.
At this cross generational club, the participants will see a new skill presented each month . Participants will also get to meet like-minded peers, work on exciting team and individual projects, and learn new skills from each other.
Upcoming themes and skills:
16 October: Storing special things: Discover how we store items in the museum and how to make your own net to store your own special objects
20 November: Friends or foes: Learn about pest prevention and how to repair the damage they can bring
18 December : Christmas Wrapping : Encounter how we protect our special objects in our storage facility and learn new ways to wrap your gifts ensuring they wont break on their way to your loved ones.
