News from the Stores

Display maker, Lee Wheeler, started working with us this week. He is making the mounts for the objects going on display. He works with metal and Perspex to make supports, cradles and frames for our collections. The objects chosen for the new displays range from fragile and delicate to heavy and awkwardly shaped or weighted.

It is extremely skilled work which is largely unseen in the display. The mount shows off an object in the best way without it being seen itself.

The mounts are made to hold the objects securely and discreetly
