We encourage members to engage in their own research and to share the results of their labours, whether academic or practical. It may involve trying out the recorded soap recipes, looking at existing early felted hats in museum collections, experimenting with different grades of steel for knife blades or reading period play texts. Workshops for members allow us to practise skills and learn new ones.
We have a set of quality standards and expect all our presentations and members to meet or exceed them.
The quality of our presentations is important to us both in terms of historical accuracy and also in the way we communicate. We strive to be open, accessible and welcoming. We hope to be both entertaining and interesting to young and old alike. We have given a lot of thought to the ways in which we engage with members of the public.
