Work closely with a member of the curatorial team to locate an item with an untold story at Chawton House and tell it in a fresh way.

This interactive session (1.5-2 hours), is adaptable to suit different ages and stages, will give students the opportunity to delve a little deeper into an area of Chawton House’s collections or operations. Sessions require minimal preparation, and are run by an experienced member of the Chawton House team. They include a prep sheet (provided in advance where necessary), group activities and discussion, some book handling, and takeaway materials.
