Trowbridge Museum part two


 Hi,
Last week we took our Grand Daughter back to the Trowbridge Museum to see the weaving exhibition which they were putting together when we went last time.   Unfortunately we were not as happy with this exhibition,
The top picture shows weaving with two sticks which you wind the thread around in a figure eight and push down the white cord until you have a long strip which is then made into something such as the mat in the picture.
This is her doing some weaving they had some long strip of fabric for any one who wanted to play with weaving,  and the picture below shows her small effort,  they would not let her have this piece but I did buy her a weaving card and instructions for her to play with at home.
As I say there was no one to tell us about the displays,  so I will leave with the picture sorry I can't tell you anything about them,  enjoy






Hugs
Margaret

  1. Always loved the weaving sets we used to get as gifts at Christmas time, they were so tiny but held many happy hours...glad you could pick your grandaughter one up, bet she loves it Margaret...xx

  2. Museums are so much more interesting when there is someone there to explain things. Still, I would enjoy seeing a place such as the Trowbridge Museum.

  3. Well the items are quaint, odd they did not let her keep her weaving sounds like they needed to organize this a bit more or get some funding or something huh?
