Domestic Technology

4:50 PM

At the Ballast we tend to specialise in large scale industries but tomorrow I will be attending an event that focuses on domestic technologies: sewing machines, woodwork tools, typewriters and blacksmith or cobblers' tools.

I will be attending the launch of the STICK Effective Collections project 'Old Tools, New Uses' which is working with museums in Scotland to identify the treasures and duplicates of tools and domestic technology they have.

A series of workshops are being held to enable participants to learn the importance of items in their collections from an independent specialist advisor, have access to a schools resource and get the opportunity to dispose of duplicate items to artisan communities in Africa in partnership with the charity Tools for Self Reliance .
