Community Outreach Event
The Curious Cabinet Project - Working with the Charterhouse Museum
We are currently working on an Arts Council funded project with the Charterhouse Museum. The last few months have seen enormous changes in the collection of prayer books and Bibles that we have been working on. Every book has been assessed, cleaned and boxed and the whole space cleaned up and readied for the future. We have worked alongside staff, residents and volunteers in the community events and sparked some amazing inspiration in the Creative Writes online workshops and visits. Some of the worst damaged books are currently being treated in the Codex Conservation workshop in London. Sam is currently working with ACAP Media to make some videos about their conservation journey. Their fantastic transformations will be available on this website and through our social media channels.

Talks about finding the
John James Morris Diaries
Out on a walk one day our heroine Jo makes an important find. These diaries cover 68 years of Cornish life written by one man - John James Morris. We will be helping Jo and her team apply for a grant to preserve these journals for all to enjoy.
