The Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland, and particularly the Treasured Places team, would like to thank all those that made the workshops illustrated in this exhibition possible: the individuals and groups who willingly explored their creativity, the venues that hosted the activities, and the artists and specialists who led the events. Both the workshops and this exhibition were greatly assisted by RCAHMS colleagues from right across the organisation who shared knowledge, recorded events, scanned images, and assisted with logistics.


RCAHMS is grateful for the support of the Heritage Lottery Fund and the
Scottish Government.
