To link with our Make, Mend and Wash exhibition, explore a range of textile crafts with local crafts people. From lace making to weaving and tambour beading to spinning, each session will include a talk on the history of the technique, related objects from the Museum’s collection to look at, and a workshop for participants to try the technique and create a small object or sample to take away.
Historically, Buckinghamshire was famous for it’s bobbin lace, and Amersham was no exception. Come try your hand at the different stitches, hear about the history of lace in Amersham and make a small object to take away.
