Rachel Hand, Curatorial Assistant, Anthropology at the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology leading a session in object handling and conservation for the Connecting with Collections interns. The seminar also covered exhibition mounting, lead by Matt Buckley, head of workshop at the MAA. The interns are concentrating intently at producing the perfect puff.

Many thanks to Rachel and Matt for some fascinating insights when working up close and gloved hands on with objects.
