FORGOTTEN PROFESSIONS

We would like to look back on forgotten professions, search for information about them and see if any of them is still alive in our time.

POLAND - our workshops

We worked with five groups of three or four pupils from different classes. Everyone of us worked with one group. We chose a few texts from our project: a fuller, a weeper, a pipe maker, a bell-founder, an umbrella man and a hosier repairer and we did some exercises, a word puzzle and two crosswords. The finale task was to make a poster about forgotten professions. We hope our friends were satisfied with the workshops.
