Booking Required

Once upon a time, there was you, your textile and your story.  From Granny’s old teddy to your child’s Christening robe, textiles hold memories for us all. We’d love to find out more about the textiles that matter to you and record your special stories about them. So bring along your cherished item to this relaxed and informal story sharing day and tell us all about it. Sessions are an hour long, during which time your stories will be filmed and our textile conservator Cecilia will advise on how to preserve it for the future.
