      Georgian Richmond: Samplers and Patchwork - family workshop

      Tuesday 11 August to Friday 14 August 2020



      Discover what life was like in Georgian Richmond and the amazing and unexpected story of Elizabeth, Dowager Duchess of Devonshire, who lived on Queen’s Road, Richmond. Have a go at creating your own simple samplers and easy patchwork, just like they did in Georgian times.



      Workshops are £5.50 per child. Booking is essential as places are limited



      Follow this link to book: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/georgian-richmond-samplers-and-patchwork-tickets-84004067427



      Using a mix of real and replica historical objects from the Museum’s handling collection, our workshops provide families with a hands on experience where they learn more about the history of the local area and develop new skills by having a go at arts and craft activities.



      Our workshops are led by our Learning Officer, Vicky, who has over ten years of experience of working with families and has an Enhanced DBS check.



      Workshops are primarily aimed at children aged 5-11 years old. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times, and adults are encouraged to get stuck in too!



      Younger siblings (under 5s) are welcome to join in and we can provide simple craft and colouring materials for them during the workshop instead of the main craft resources. as the workshop charges are to help us cover the cost of craft materials.



      Children aged 11 and over are also welcome to join in, and we can make the activities more challenging for them. They would need to have a paid for place booked for them as the workshop charges are to help us cover the cost of craft materials used during the workshop.
