We have four parts to our schools outreach available for schools:
- We can provide talks on the history of thread making
- An education teaching pack.
- A handling kit
- and stitching (embroidery) workshops
If you would like us to visit your school please contact us. Activities will be tailored to suit primary or secondary depending on requirements.
The Education Teaching Pack is under development. The first 10 sections can be viewed below. These are still in draft and will be updated fairly soon.
