Develop ideas that might be used for a special exhibition. The exhibition is hoping to use all the public areas of Platt Hall for a short special "event". The theme of the event is Mary Greg and her Bygone Collection.
I love how these things are packed away - stacked boxes, labelled. The costumes are kept in wardrobes all lined up side by side, with locks and small keys. Its the act of discovery in opening them up that appeals to us.
Some of my favourite finds:
These miniature versions of objects have been lovingly stored in a shallow box with small compartments.
A memorial piece to keep locks of hair, each lock is framed and amazingly worked, I guess these are a bit macabre, but I like eerie, I think they're very sentimental.
