About the Event

Join us at a symposium to explore how collaboration between museums and the world of contemporary craft can help to shed new light on museum collections. 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. All ticket holders are invited to join us at 18:00 for a drinks reception and exclusive preview of the new Glenmorangie Commission, by silversmith Simone ten Hompel, in the Grand Gallery of the National Museum of Scotland. This event is generously supported by The Glenmorangie Company.
