Tower Museum to host final festive workshop

14 December 2016

The Tower Museum will be hosting the last of its Christmas workshops this week, giving members of the public an opportunity to revisit the ghosts of Christmas past by making their own Victorian Christmas decorations and cards, as well as designs with a more modern twist.

This is the third workshop in the series and the perfect way to mark the final countdown to Christmas.

Assistant Education and Access Officer with the Museum, Betty Doherty, said the sessions offered the perfect opportunity for people to really get into the Christmas spirit. “This final workshop will be a lovely way to get into the spirit of Christmas, and making your own decorations is a very cost effective and rewarding hobby.

“It is also a tribute to a bygone era when families spent quality time at Christmas making their own decorations. We will work on lots of different decorations at the workshop, and visitors can take them home with them but hopefully also leave one to decorate our community tree in the lobby of the Tower Museum.

“We will also have our old toy collection on display, and if anyone would like to bring any of their old toys to tell us about them during the workshops, they would be most welcome.”

The workshops will take place on Friday, December 16, from 10am – 11.30am, and the cost for each workshop is £2.  For more information and to book contact 028 7137 2411.
