The route to museumaker and Killhope can be tracked back to early research in the fabulous stores at the V&A. Heavy Metal, Leaden, LEAD Too, And even before that, to the Bankfield Museum in Halifax when I trialed the very first woven lead sample. A short film by Jess James Hutchinson: Make it Work describes a part of that explorative process.
