My Dreweatts Work Experience by Peter Jonathan ‘PJ’ Gregory
As part of my year 8 curriculum I did a two-day work shadowing placement. On 26 & 27 June I joined Dreweatts auction house where I took part in various activities.
During my time at Dreweatts I attended an auction where I collated the prices the lots were sold for. I then had a trip to the warehouse, in which I viewed, photographed and catalogued antiques. Additionally, I interviewed a couple of staff members, each interesting and different in their own ways, and asked a series of questions.
This experience was unique and informative. I also learned all about antiques and behind the scenes. I found my days, although short, at Dreweatts very inspiring, it even helped me consider my future career! Finally, I would like to thank all the staff for making me feel welcome and involved. Overall a great experience.
