"Maritime Heritage"

The workshop provided people of all ages, from primary school children to adults, from throughout the Orkney Isles with the opportunity to explore and consider the various aspects of Orkney’s maritime heritage.

The workshop was designed to facilitate the generic learning outcomes (GLOs) identified by the Museums, Libraries and Archives Council's 'Inspiring Learning for All' (ILFA) framework.

"Orkney is a magical place with so much heritage that acts as an inspiration to delve deeper into its history and folklore through archive material and creative expression. This workshop stimulated the need to know more!"
