Free Admission, drop in.

Sonia Overall is a writer who is interested in how we invest emotionally in objects and how objects connect us to our personal history and to the wider past. Drawing on the concept of Bricolage, Sonia is writing about the secret lives of objects from the Beaney collection: the people who have made, owned, touched or admired them: the real and the imagined. A DIY museum of words.
