Thank you to everyone who came to the Heath Robinson Museum Grand Opening and to everyone who helped and supported it. The Museum is now open from 11am-4pm on Thursday–Sunday. We are recruiting volunteers and hope to be able to open for longer hours soon. Please check the Museum website for details.
The Heath Robinson Museum is an international centre for the appreciation of the artist’s work. It will welcome people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds to enjoy and learn from the artist and themes related to him. West House and its surrounding park complements the Museum as a community arts and social centre.
If you would like to volunteer your skills, we have plenty of opportunities to be part of the Museum, which means so much to Pinner and to fans of Heath Robinson. Follow this link for more details.
We are delighted to announce the appointment of Dr Claire Linge as our new Learning Officer for Children, Young People and Families. Claire’s post is funded by John Lyon’s Charity and the Heritage Lottery Fund.
Claire is an exhibited artist under the name of Claire Zammit, and has an MA in Art and Media Practice. She also holds a PhD in Molecular and Cell Biology. In fact, she has the perfect blend of art and science for a job working with Heath Robinson! Dedicated to bringing art to everyone, Claire until recently worked with young people with special needs at Woodfield School in Kingsbury. She says,
‘I am passionate about art, its practice, its history and conceptual development over time, and also its ability to improve creative thinking and affect other aspects of our lives’.
If you are from a school which would like to work with the Heath Robinson Museum, please contact her on Claire@heathrobinsonmuseum.org.
