Rooted in Reality

Speaking to students at Worcester University Graphic Design
department about what makes good museum interpretation!

New for 2022! I’ve been developing a series of training opportunities that are aimed at supporting you in your career, helping you make the best choices for your museum. Each course is developed with an understanding of the challenges you’re facing and are very much rooted in the reality of what it’s like working in museums today.

“After a really tough couple of years, this workshop was exactly what I needed. Tonia was both thoughtful and helpful. I feel so much better equipped now.” Kate.

As well as my own workshops, I’m also available for hire! If you’d like to book me to deliver a training session to your team or group, use the form on the Contact page or email me direct.
