A sunny, successful start to Open Days
We were lucky with the weather on Saturday! What a great start to our Open Day season, with lots of visitors coming to enjoy Tudor Games in the sunshine.
We had games set up throughout the site including quoits, skittles, Shove Ha’penny, and Tudor favourite Nine Men’s Morris.
Volunteer Tina made the two board games completely from scratch especially for this Open Day. We’ll definitely be getting these back out in the future!
In addition to the games theme, it was also Easter so we had an Easter trail and the opportunity to learn how to dye eggs using natural materials.
Throughout this year we’ll be weaving a piece of material to mark our tenth anniversary of being open to the public. Part of this is following the life of a woven fabric starting at the point of dyeing the wool.
Come along and have a try at weaving on one of our future Open Days, or just find out more about the spinning and weaving process.
It wouldn’t be the Weaver’s House without cake of course, and there was plenty on offer including special Easter treats!
We hope to see you at our next Open Day which will have a special May Day/Crafts theme.
