Half-term Family Crafts

Join us for family crafts on Wednesday during half-term, from 1-3pm. We’ll be making quill pens and using home-made ink to write our own Victorian-style letters, just like the letter in our servants exhibition, written to Elizabeth Gaskell’s stable boy, Will Preston, and found tucked away in the eaves of the House during renovations. Come along, make a quill, and be inspired to write a letter of your own!

We've got a house...it certainly is a beauty...I must try and make the house give as much pleasure to others as I can.’

Elizabeth Gaskell, in a letter to her friend Eliza Fox in 1850.
