Going to the Seaside with Souvenir Craft Activity Workshop
Site: Abbey House Museum
This workshop is led by museums staff.
This workshop compares seaside holidays in the recent past with those taken a long time ago by examining a range of objects and photographs from the museum's collection. Themes include: how and where did Victorians go on holiday and what type of holiday souvenir would they have brought home? These are compared with pupils experiences and there is opportunity for interaction and discussion.
Each workshop is divided into an interactive object handling session with a workshop leader and a led seaside themed craft activity where pupils can make their own seaside souvenir and postcard.
Classes will be split into 2 groups for the following workshops (with the exception of the Abbey House Murder Mystery), each group spending 45 minutes in the workshop and 45 minutes exploring the Museum galleries with their responsible adult. Workshops are available Tuesday - Friday and are led by a member of the Museum's freelance learning staff.
