Museum of Carpet displays to be 'interactive'
CAMERAS have been whirling at the Museum of Carpet to give visitors an interactive experience as the wander through the displays.
Eight audio/ visual programmes have been created for the exhibitions as part of the museum’s aim to be fun and educational.
One video will focus on the museum’s Wilton Jacquard and Spool Axminster looms which will not be working every day.
Another film will show Kidderminster through the ages, from women at work to the Second World War and sketches telling the story of the people of the town.
A touch screen will allow visitors to create their own carpet designs and, when completed, a projector will beam the carpet on to the museum floor.
Nigel Moore, a producer for Fuzzy Duck Creative who have helped create the films, said: “We are looking forward to brining all this alive.
“With everything going on inside the museum there are some very generic stories which are applicable to many people. It is about telling those stories and making them interesting for the general public.”
Museum manager Paula Kovacs said: “Instead of just seeing the machines the videos will show a visual representation of how they used to work.”
