A monthly group for people with experience of caring.  Bring your knitting, stitching and crafting projects to our café for an informal, social and crafty group. All levels of experience are welcome and, just to make sure, we will provide small activities that anyone can do.

Every third month staff and volunteers working on our costume collection project ‘Look Again’ will join the group to share the fabulous histories and personal stories behind some of the hundreds of items of clothing in our stores. Find out too about some of the skills used to make the items.

We are able to offer a welcoming and supportive space to meet together in our historic building with a little something extra from our vast and often unseen collections. Share your own skills, chat and benefit from coming together to create and learn with people who have a shared experience with you.

Access: The Museum café is on the ground floor with level access and close to toilet facilities. The Meetings Room is on the First Floor (access by stairs only). For full details of accessibility follow this link
