Wash Day

Using role play children will find out what a laborious job washing clothes was for the servants at Preston Hall. Including 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.
