The project kick-started with a visit to Collins Barracks last week, where the students and staff were guided through the exhibition by the curator, Lar Joye and by military expert Glenn Thompson. This was followed by a handling session where students had the opportunity to see garments up close, which was led by Edith Andrees. A huge thank you to everyone at the museum, particularily Helen Beaumont and Mary Greene from the Education and Outreach Department for making the day so informative and inspiring.
