First meetings:


Wednesday 12 June, 6pm -7:30pm Behind the Scenes at Amersham Museum

Meet like-minded professional makers in an informal gathering with plenty of time to chat and have a cuppa. Emma Treleaven, Collections Manager, will share a wide variety of items from Amersham Museum’s historical collections, made by local craftspeople, inspired by local history and created from local materials. Get your creative juices flowing, and connect with others as we plan subsequent sessions to meet your needs.


Wednesday 17 July, 6pm-7:30pm Working with Museums and Galleries

Take the chance to meet staff from a number of local museums and galleries to learn more about their upcoming projects, collections and opportunities. Discuss collaborations with museums from your perspective, with the aim to break down barriers between makers and organisations in the future. How might we work together better and smarter, sharing ideas and expertise?


Dates and topics for sessions in September through to December to be confirmed through consultation with Hub members.

“Enjoyed our visit to this wonderful interactive museum where you are positively encouraged to touch things!”

“Visited Amersham museum yesterday – lovely place, provides many details on the history of the place. Plenty of cute cafes, pubs and shops around also… not difficult to find free parking nearby. ”

“A well-run, informative and interesting small museum on the main street. It’s mostly volunteer-run and they do a great job in keeping it and making you feel welcome…Check out the herb garden too.”

“Enjoyable film and television location guided walk around Amersham hosted by Amersham Museum – here are the Sun Houses on Highover Park and further up the hill is High & Over.”
