ABOUT THIS EVENT
Formerly a thriving local cottage industry and now an engaging hobby. Come along to celebrate the fascinating craft of lacemaking with us at our Bobbin Lace Taster Day!
You will also be able to enjoy:
You can book to have a go at lacemaking yourself (‘Have a Go’ ticket £10) or alternatively with an 'Observer' ticket (£3) you can simply enjoy the displays, talks and music.
Tickets for children, teenagers and students are free. Children need to be 8 or over to have a go at lacemaking and those under 11 must be accompanied by an adult.
Two lacemaking sessions are available (morning 10am – 1 pm, afternoon 2pm – 4:15pm), with a break for music and the talk on lacemaking from 1 – 2pm for both morning and afternoon ticket holders. If you book a ‘Have a Go’ ticket, upon arrival you will be invited to sign up to a 45 min slot during which you will be able to 'have a go' at lacemaking.
Places are limited – book now!
Reminder: please bring cash if you wish to purchase lacemaking supplies on the day.
