Abstract / Summary

This paper reports on an undergraduate project, Making: Archives - Narrative Artefact, as an exemplar of collaborative good practice, expanding on its case study in the National Archives and History UK's Guide to Collaboration for Archive and Higher Education. The paper examines the expected and unexpected impacts of the Making: Archives collaborative project for the stakeholders involved: the Institution, the Archive Service, its depositors and in particular the students. Students have both struggled and excelled in this project, with the most engaged developing a range of creative and transferrable skills that have been repurposed in the creation of work beyond Making:Archives. The paper also reflects on the challenges faced, and numerous opportunities presented, during the co-creation, delievery and evalution of the project, drawing extensive data gathered from student participants. The project is presented in the context of relevant literature from both the textile education, indusrty and archives sectors.
