Teachers can work with Museum learning staff to plan tailored workshops for your school on topics related to the museum collections, e.g. costume, textile crafts, local heroes, local industry and world cultures. These can be delivered in the Museum or in-school. Charges apply to all museum-led workshops.

Museum learning staff can support creative career days in schools with talks and presentations. We can also deliver in-school assemblies to promote special exhibitions and events. Please note charges usually apply to outreach activities.
