We love what we do and want to share our skills with the next generation, enthusiasts and novices alike.
Outreach - Sharing What We Do
Younger Conservation has, over a number of years, provided numerous work-based opportunities and welcomed many visitors through our door to see and share what we do and how we work.
Eliza Younger participating in ‘Bring your Child to Work Day’. This video is her take on what we do (taken during work at No.7 The Stables).
We welcome embroidery enthusiasts and time spent with clients.
We also, participate in Perth & Kinross ‘Doors Open Days’
Doors Open Days is Scotland’s largest free festival that celebrates heritage and the built environment. This annual event gives local residents and visitors of all ages the opportunity to visit historic, civic and interesting buildings that are not usually open or accessible to the public and it’s all for free!
Since 2001 Younger Conservation has provided at least ten work-based opportunities such as: internships, short contracts and work experience for students and recent graduates.
Here are Textile Conservation, Post Graduate students from Glasgow University visiting in 2013.
And here are a few of our interns busy at work (apologies to all those I have missed out). It has been a great pleasure welcoming and sharing with others our skills.
Caritas Quilt – Encouraging School Children to Sew!
St John The Baptist’s, Perth. Parish children of all ages participated in the project, here they are pictured standing in front of one of the four Liturgical quilts!
The quilts are now used during services as a pictorial, engaging and tactile resource.
