Telling the Story workshop: leaflets and displays
When you love a subject as much as we do, it’s easy to lose track of how to best tell the story in a way that everyone else will find interesting too!
This workshop, part of Sharing Repton, and hosted with Brighton Museums, is intended for anyone who would like to be able to share their knowledge of garden history with a wide range of people. Leading Interpretation Consultant Steve Slack (www.steveslack.co.uk) will take us through the Why, How and What of making our leaflets and displays as effective as possible.
