Join us for a Wash Day workshop
Using role play, children will find out what a laborious job washing clothes was for the servants at Preston Hall. The session will include washing with carbolic soap, using a water pump, putting clothes through a mangle and using the heavy irons. During the session, children will create their own wooden peg just as children in Victorian times would have done.
Our popular, hands-on workshops are led by a member of the Museum Learning Team and have a mixture of replica and original objects for your class to explore and enjoy. Plus, children get to make something to take home on the day
Lasting approximately 1 hour (start times: 10am, 11.15am and 1pm)
Suitable for Key Stage 1 and 2
£35 per workshop (up to 30 children), plus £1.50 museum admission charge per child
