elephant-boxLunchboxes. They come in many colours and designs.  Soft or hard.   Zipped or with a lid.  But all in plastic. You can buy one for your child - perhaps with the latest TV hero.  It looks great on day one – and sordid within a few weeks.  There are the zips that break, the unwashable areas, the catches that go, the scratches, the broken seals.  Then it’s into the landfill.  More waste plastic and more money to fork out.

Joy Bariana became fed up with the lunch-box cycle a long time ago.  The expense, the waste, and the environmental implications of that waste.  And so, she started to try and think outside the box – the plastic lunch-box at least.

net-machine2Bridport Museum are seeking people to help them identify a new and exciting collection of rope and net making machinery as part of their redevelopment plans. The aim to rebuild them and display them in the refurbished museum so visitors can really see how rope and net were made.

You may have heard that we have  entered an exciting phase of re-development which has come about as a result of a bequest from the Sanctuary family of the contents of their museum which was formerly located at Uploders. Part of that bequest consisted of some rope and net machinery which had been dismantled and is now in pieces.
