We are launching our new Craft Programme this August!
Visitors can drop into the NIWM Gallery on Thursday the 11th of August 2016 as part of Craft Month to take part in the launch of our ‘If You Can Knit – You Can Do Your Bit’ Craft Programme.
This Make Do and Mend event launches a series of 1940s workshops that will take place in the Museum throughout 2016 – 2017.
Drop in to learn how wartime shortages fed creativity on the Home Front, while Textile Artist Tineke Kroes demonstrates wartime knitting. Visitors can listen to wartime tunes on the gramophone and view a display of 1940’s textiles.
Don’t forget to pick up our new Craft Days calendar from the gallery with dates of when you can come in and get involved with new taster craft activities to suit all ages.
