Art students have designs on badge project

Students from the Edinburgh College of Art are helping to restore old badges with a historical link to health services in the area.

They are working with the Lothians Health Service Archive (LHSA) on a selection of enamel badges. Both organisations will benefit from the Unsung Heroes project, with LHSA boosting the profile of the badges.

It is hoped the jewellery and silversmithing students can take inspiration from the old designs to incorporate into new ones.
