A recent Mrs History project has been to create a set of resource boxes for the Jewellery Quarter Townscape Heritage project. The Resource Boxes are designed to introduce people to the rich heritage of the Jewellery Quarter and help them explore aspects of it. The boxes will be available to schools and heritage venues to access orginal and replica objects to enhance learning and understanding of the past. Boxes are themed
- The Jewellery Trade
- The Jewellery Quarter at War
- The Pen Trade
- Decorative Metalware – Newman Brothers
- Decorative Metalware – J W Evans
The objects are adapted to be handled and are stored safely in a bespoke case, designed so the boxes can travel. They have been specially selected for the story they tell and sourced from a variety of people and places. Each box includes information about the object and its context within the topic and is accompanied by a range of suggested activities that link directly to the curriculum.
Jewellery Quarter Townscape Heritage is funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
