Jen Gordon is Assistant Curator at the Scottish Fisheries Museum where among other things she helps care for, research and engage the Museum’s audience with a collection of historic clothing representing the traditional Work Wear, Sunday Best and Gala Dress of the Scottish Fishing Community. The collection has been recognised as having national significance but, more importantly, reveals the skill of the makers and the personal stories of the owners of these practical, yet also often beautiful, garments. With this talk, Jen invites you to join her as she unlocks the museum ‘kist’ and unravel the yarns within.
