Event description
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, develop new skills by having a go at arts and craft activities, and spend quality time together.
In this workshop: 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
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 aimed at children aged 5-11 years old. For children aged 11 and over, we can make the activities more challenging for them. Children must be accompanied by an ***** at all times. If younger siblings (under 5s) are coming as well and not taking part in the main craft activity, we can provide colouring materials for them free of charge, as the workshop charges are to help us cover the cost of craft materials. When booking, please book places for adults and under 5s, as this lets us know how many chairs we need to put out for the workshop.
Any questions? Email learning@ call 020 8332 1141. We are happy to help!
