What we do...

Hands on History tells stories of the past, present and future through found artefacts from the River Thames. 

The project is co-curated and organised by mudlarks Jason Sandy, Monika Buttling-Smith and Marie-Louise Plum.

As well as an annual programme of events for Totally Thames, Hands on History facilitates one-off talks, exhibitions and interactive events. 

We partner frequently with like-minded organisations, such as London's historic livery companies and national museums to deliver exciting, engaging and inclusive programmes to people from all walks of life.

Please see the link below to see the kind of thing we like to get up to!
