An eighteenth century school is the theme for workshops for children, which will take place at Nantwich Museum on Wednesday 21 and Thursday 22 August 2019.
A wide range of activities include making mortar boards, dunces’ caps, peg
dolls and rag rugs as well as writing with quills and on slates. Inspired by the Museum’s From Nantwich to Oxygen: Joseph Priestley’s Journey of
Discovery summer exhibition, there will also be a Periodic Table element
trail, games and an opportunity to create words from magnetic element symbols. Quizzes, puzzles, colouring and word searches all offer the opportunity for an exciting time including Top Trump Cards. Those who like dressing up will have the opportunity to try on wigs and hats.
All workshops are drop in any time between 11.00 am and 3.00 pm. The cost is £2.00 per child who must be accompanied. Large groups are requested to
book in advance.
