Lone inkwell finds a place at Fairlynch
Are you a teacher? Would you like to plan your lessons using real objects from a museum in a way that will stimulate, support and enrich your pupils’ learning?
Fairlynch Museum, in common with many similar institutions, has a number of Schools Loan Boxes containing objects ranging from ancient to modern which can be used by teachers. Each box is themed according to the contents, and covers subject areas such as Victorian Life, Toys of the Past, Archaeology, and Textiles.
The latest addition to the Fairlynch’s Loan Box collection is this pretty cut glass inkwell, kindly donated to the Museum by a local resident. Calligraphy expert and Friend of Fairlynch Irene Whalley thinks that it would have been one of a pair. “With its Gothic top and faceted shape it’s really quite elegant. A delightful piece,” she says.
To borrow one of Fairlynch Museum’s Loan Boxes you can contact the Museum on 01395 442666; email: firstname.lastname@example.org
