I came to know about Fionn Zarubica through a friend who recommended I take the “Collections Management For Costume & Textiles Online” course and I am glad I did.
I took this Online course from March 2017 to June 2017. Considering this being an online course, I was wondering how effective this would be. The style of teaching and involving all the participants in the course was unique. The assignments were very enriching not only in the subject matter but also in the essay writing skills. I did not feel any of the drawback of the typical online courses.
Considering the participants being from different parts of the world and different cultures, Fionn handled that beautifully. Her deep knowledge in the museum, collections and various religions & cultures are impressive.
The content and reference materials she provided in the class were excellent and will be a good reference for future.
Even though I am from a Information Technology background, I had been involved in collection management for a non-profit organization. The course was very beneficial not only for textile conservation, but also in general conservation.
Anybody who is considering taking her course, I strongly recommend to go ahead and take the course. Like me, I am sure you will be glad you did.
