As part of the Im/Material conference the object handling workshops will provide a range of opportunities to interact with the archives and special collections held and curated by the University of the Arts London.

Collection managers will use a selection of items which can be handled, to demonstrate how an enquiring encounter with archives can facilitate an experiential learning experience.
