Writing from the collection


Connections to the past …

Join CBCA Award Winning author, Kate Gordon, for an extra special writing workshop, using objects from the collection to create portals to the past! Choose a magical object and time period to travel to, and let your imagination run wild! Kate’s book, Whalesong, was written during her residency at the Maritime Museum. It is about a girl called Aberdeen, who travels to nineteenth century Tasmania, with the help of a scrimshaw necklace and a magical chronometer. Where will your travels take you?
