Scissors made in the mid 1800s by the Sheffield manufacturer Edwin Hunter.

Tune in to our Facebook page on Wed 23 Jun at 1pm for our next online event!

From bells to handmade scissors, take a look at some iconic Sheffield-made objects from the city’s collection with Mary Lewis, Endangered Crafts Manager at the Heritage Crafts Association.

Learn about the special skills used to make these objects - some of which are now sadly becoming endangered, with only a handful of skilled makers remaining - and find out more about the work the Heritage Crafts Association does with craftspeople, groups, societies and guilds to maintain a healthy and sustainable framework for the future of traditional crafts skills.

If you can’t make the live broadcast, the video will be available to watch later on our Facebook Live page or on our Sheffield Museums Live archive page.
