Gdes2014 Visit to the National Archives/Clients

Friday 21st of October saw our group go down to the National Archives at Kew, nr Richmond for a day of workshops and discussions about this semester's 'live' brief.

The brief's been set by staff at the National Archives and aims by collaboration to help develop a working prototype eActivity Book around the subject of 'Significant People in History'.. The final outputs from this semester's cohort will be looked over by the clients who will then choose their favourite spreads or work to go into an acrual .pdf eBook that they hope to use with visiting families as part of their 'Archives Inspire' initiative.

Here's a few pictures from the day's visit and activities:
