Engagement and interpretation
Kids aren't dumb, so we do we reduce ourselves to measuring sunflowers and cuddly mascot spotting when trying to engage them with historic sites?
I believe passionately in treating kids with respect but also with an eye to the importance of play in learning, so love to mix Serious Historic Information with a bit of Cheeky Fun.
So when creating a school workshop for Sayes Court in Deptford, it seemed obvious to follow up an introduction to Peter the Great with a wheelbarrow race to reinact his infamous escapade crashing through John Evelyn's holly hedge!
My engagement and interpretation services include:
- Programmes of workshops and other events to engage children with your historic property. Curriculum-linked or just a bit of fun, we love it either way!
- hiStorytelling to introduce children to the wonderful world of landscape history.
- Interpretation tools for your youngest visitors, from concept to production.
