Silk Heritage

Why did Macclesfield become a centre of Silk production?  

Would you like to bring your students to the museum for a tour of the mill and to get hands on with some artefacts?

If you can’t come to us you needn’t miss out.  We have loan boxes, videos and online resources for you to use in the classroom.  We can even come to you to deliver artefact handling and weaving workshops!
