Dementia-Friendly Session: Traditional Crafts: Textiles (Ticketed)

Saturday 07 May 2016
2.30pm - 4pm

As part of the Chichester District ‘Living Well with Dementia Festival’, which runs for 7 weeks from mid-April to late May 2016, the Museum is offering a series of short sessions with afternoon tea.

On Saturday 7 May 2016 we are offering the session Traditional Crafts: Textiles. Wool is a wonderful material that the people living in the buildings on the site have used for centuries to keep warm, as we do today. You will see spinning, carding and items made from textiles as well as having the chance to have a go yourself, if you would like, with a drop spindle and carders. We will have a look at some of the historic clothing made here and it is possible to see Southdown sheep at the Museum.

The session will start at 2.30pm and will last for 45 minutes. Tea, coffee and cake will be served at the end of the session.
