New Year at the Museums

A New Year and a new start. Have you made any resolutions for 2019?

Learn a new hobby from an expert; explore your own creativity and expand your artistic skills with one of our Maker’s Place Workshops –  choose from wide a variety including needlefelting, crochet, jewellery, flower arranging and printing.

Make friends and try something new at our weekly Have a Dabble Adult Art and Craft classes for beginners and improvers. Held every Monday during term time from 9am-noon and 12-3.30pm.

Take time out and immerse yourself in local history by visiting our unparalleled collection of silk heritage at the Silk Museum on Park Lane.
