CSM x Foundling Museum

CSM x Foundling Museum

This project saw  BA Jewellery Design students and staff from Central Saint Martins making new work based on collections at the Foundling Museum. Their contemporary response to the Foundling Museum’s story was shown in Finding, a temporary exhibition held throughout the Museum’s permanent galleries.

Drawing upon their research and experience, the students also delivered a workshop for local school groups. This unique project resulted in stunning new work, gave staff and students an opportunity to exhibit alongside one another and encouraged undergraduates to communicate their ideas to school students, attracting a wider audience to the Foundling Museum.
