MUSEUM NEWS 2020
FROM COTTAGE INDUSTRY TO MILL
SADLY THE DESCISSION WAS MADE EARLIER THIS YEAR TO POSTPONE MUSEUM OPENING.
WE HAVE NOW DECIDED TO OPEN BY APPOINTMENT FROM THE END OF AUGUST.
PLEASE CALL 01544 260777 WHERE YOU CAN LEAVE A MESSAGE .
This years Exhibition returns to a subject we began to research for our first pop up Museum, where we looked at examples of Blanket weaving and Cloth production from both the small rural mills and the larger mills of the 19th and 20th centuries.
The following year we started a mapping project where we began to gather information about the individual mills in a quest to find out more about the smaller rural mills which fulfilled the needs of their own communities, as well as those that wove on a larger commercial scale.
We will be opening in May with many new pieces to add to the collection, throughout the summer we will be continuing to work on the mapping project in preparation for our August Festival Exhibition.
More news and dates for Summer events and Classes to be announced Shortly
please do check back to find out More about the mapping project as it progresses.
