Weaving Women’s Stories (Activity Day)

November 17, 10:00 am - 5:30 pm

Explore the connections between storytelling and textile-making in women’s lives from ancient Greece to modern London. In this hands-on activity day, drop by in the morning to try your hand at spinning fleece into yarn, or at weaving on a replica loom. Make artefacts – from clay and cloth – inspired by archaeological evidence from ancient Greece and Rome; or join us in the afternoon to weave your own personal ‘story’ in a workshop led by award-winning textile artist Majeda Clarke.

Activies will run on a drop-in basis during the morning, and families are very welcome!

For the afternoon session please book in advance to avoid disappointment.

Activities run at the following times:

10:00am-1:00pm, hands-on family workshop (drop-in session, no booking required).

2:30pm-5:30pm, artist-led weaving workshop (please email the organiser to book).
