Killerton House: Thirsty for fashion
The story of our exhibition at Killerton House for the National Trust, about fast fashion and how previous generations repaired, recycled and reworked their clothes. Can we be inspired do the same in this day and age?
Dorset Wildlife Trust: Brownsea Island
There are two bird hides on the nature reserve at Brownsea Island, overlooking the lagoon. We designed and installed some interpretation there, featuring identification panels showing the species you might spot, and when might be the best time to see them.
Hidcote Manor: house displays
The National Trust’s Hidcote is renowned for its gardens, but the story of Hidcote’s owner Gertrude Winthrop and her son Lawrence Johnson, told through our interpretation, set dressing and audio in the manor house, is fascinating.
Sturminster Newton Mill: swanskin stories
Sturminster Newton in Dorset has a working mill that has been in use since Tudor times. Working with local school children, we designed some interpretation telling the story of swanskin manufacture and the links with Newfoundland, far across the sea.
Corfe Castle: dramatic ruins
Norman castle, medieval stronghold and Tudor residence, Corfe Castle was destroyed in the English Civil war. Our displays and family quests help visitors enjoy the castle’s past of murder, imprisonment, betrayal and battle.
Swanage Pier and Marine Villas
At one end of Dorset’s famous Jurassic Coast, Swanage Pier is diver’s paradise and a popular tourist spot. We revamped the pier’s interpretation and visitor centre – Marine Villas – and designed merchandising, a website and a rebrand.
