Join the team at the Museum of Richmond and Works of Love for some free crafting workshops for adults.
Due to popular demand, we are running more coffee and crafting workshops in 2022! Do you want to try a new craft, but you are not sure where to start? Do online videos lack the personal touch for you? Then join the team at the Museum of Richmond and Works of Love for some hands-on crafting workshops for adults at the museum.
Each month we will be exploring the story behind a beautifully crafted object in the museum’s collection, then the friendly and experienced Works of Love team will show you how to start your own projects. You will even be given a goody bag of materials to help you continue crafting at home, as well as tea, coffee and snacks during a chance to chat with like minded crafters.
These workshops are 'pay what you can' to help us keep them open to as many people as possible. Workshops are held at the museum, between 1-3pm on the following dates:
Wednesday 9 February & Saturday 12 February: We will be looking at an exquisite Georgian embroidered waistcoat and having a go at creating our own embroidery designs.
Wednesday 9 March & Saturday 12 March: We will be looking at a fantastic WWII era Patchwork dress and having a go at creating our own English Paper Piecing Patchwork designs.
Wednesday 20 April & Saturday 23 April: Using a 200 year old sampler from the museum’s collection as inspiration, we will create our own samplers on aida fabric.
