Family Friendly Tour and Craft Activity

In Category

Sundays at 11.30am – 4th August, 11th August and 1st September
Three new dates added to keep little ones busy during the long summer holiday break!

Come and enjoy a shorter, child-friendly tour of the museum, followed by a fun craft activity inspired by factory processes.

Dress up as factory workers, and explore the Victorian workshops with your friendly tour guide! Learn about how things were made, the jobs people did and why children like you would have been working in the factory.

See below for dates and information about the crafts on offer:

Sunday 4th August at 11.30am – Washer Bracelets

We’ll enter the world of our platers and polishers, using inks to add colour to metal washers. Make them into bracelets or take home for a project of your own.

Sunday 11th August at 11.30am – Foiled Newman Brothers shapes

Then we’ll enter the world of our stampers and platers, using metal foils to make your own shiny cardboard cutouts of Newman Brothers’ designs.

Sunday 1st September at 11.30am – Metal Stamping

Then we’ll enter the world of our stampers and engravers, stamping your names or favourite phrases onto metal shapes. Your tour guide will make a hole in the metal using a piercing tool so you can use your artwork as a pendant, bracelet or key ring.

£5 per person (all children must be accompanied by a paying adult). Tickets are limited so book early to avoid disappointment. Booking online is essential, tickets available here now.

Recommended for ages 5-12.

Please note that due to the special price for these tours and the cost of craft materials, our summer ‘kids go free’ voucher is not valid on Family Friendly Tours.
