If you are interested in creative card-making inspired by the Victorians and designs of the early twentieth century, then why not book for an exciting new craft workshop to be held at the Cottage Museum on Thursday 9th October?
A wide variety of craft activities were very popular in Victorian and Edwardian times and paper crafts of many kinds, including producing scrap-books and greeting cards were a popular past-time. Advances in printing techniques and the introduction of more affordable postage rates led to the increasing popularity of greeting cards and some wonderful and very creative examples were produced.
The workshop will include the opportunity to create your own Victorian style greeting cards inspired by imagery and designs from the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries and a selection of local images from the Cottage Museum collection. We will use a variety of techniques and materials, to make our own inspired creations!
Everyone is very welcome to attend and both beginners and experienced crafters are welcome. The session will run by Kathy Holland on the 9th October from 10.00am- 1.00pm. Admission is £5.00 to include materials and a cup of coffee!
Places are limited so please book in advance either by calling into the Museum, open every day 10.30am – 4.00pm or telephone 01526 353455
We look forward to meeting you.
