Thanks to Issaquah History Museums for hosting 4Culture’s first StEPs workshop on collections care on Monday, May 14th. Special thanks go to Erica Maniez and Karen Klein for allowing access to the Issaquah Depot and providing necessary equipment for the workshop, which focused on creating a scope of collections statement as a crucial governing document for heritage museums. We appreciate all who attended this informative workshop, especially on such a beautiful, sunny day.
