This week, the WoW Collection is making space for two more bedtime memories in the form of copper water bottles. Both bottles were purchased in Leeds and probably date from the early 1900’s , being made in Germany or the Netherlands.
The role of the WoW Collection is to support our charity’s outreach educational workshops, trigger memories, promote creativity, inspire ever wiser water developments and serve as a fascinating record of water use.
Join in the fun and become a Friend of WoW
Do you enjoy making friends as much as we do? Friends are wonderful and our charity is only able to continue its work with the help of the many friends we have made.
Friends help us to increase the usefulness of the WoW Collections, raise funds to finance new aquisitions and carry out much needed conservation work. At our Field Centre, friends gather to enjoy countryside activities whilst adding features that will help to explain the wonders of water to students from all over the World.
Scores of ideas for preventing ever greater damage to the environment poured in during our Spring Greens Fair School Workshops and kept flowing through the two public open days that followed.
Rosie made this suggestion for a poster (left) which we’ve adapted and shared @Worldof_Water .
Workshops leaders from World of Water, The Royal Forestry Society and Green Schools Project worked together with six schools and a group of home educated pupils, over two days, to introduce the eco-themes of Spring Greens Fair 2019
One of the themes covered the need to keep waste and pollution out of ponds, lakes, streams, aquifers, rivers and the ocean. Rosie spent her time designing and illustrating this poster idea for World of Water during the day open to the public and everyone loves the message as it appeals to a wide age group in a very crisp manner. Thank you Rosie for really making a difference to our day and we will regularly use your design on @Worldof_Water and at future schools workshops.
