Our conversation this month focused on two objects selected by people who came together share, learn and
enjoy the collection.
Our initial question 'Do you write or receive letters?' linked to the inkwell chosen by Bernadette. We then took a much closer look at the inkwell and some sweet moulds both part of the Mary Greg collection donated in 2022.
The whole conversation was scribed live and illustrated by artist, Laurie Pink.

Object reflection... one object is from above the stairs and one is from below the stairs.
