These days it’s so important to do some voluntary work if you’re looking for a career in the arts, museums or galleries. That’s why, for the last two years, groups of students from the School of Art have run craft workshops for families at Ceredigion Museum.
It shows future employers that you’re motivated, it gives you loads to talk about at interviews, and having the opportunity to transform the museum in to whatever weird wonderland you choose is actually pretty good fun.
This year is no different. Students from the Art Gallery Education module have designed three workshops that will run during half term next week. Each workshop is based on textiles to celebrate the museum’s 40th Birthday and their current Quilt exhibition.
There will be games, crafts, treasure trails and even dressing up; a great afternoon of fun for all ages. So, come along and support the School of Art Volunteers, and next year why not get involved yourselves? The museum is your oyster.
Thanks to all the volunteers: Amy Jeffree, Marie Genevieve Pierre, Lorna Gray, Iita Kulmala, Karolina Hyzy, Yasmin Bailey, Gemma Western, Samantha Halford, Megan Rees
