This workshop brings history to life through the eyes of 10-year-old May Morris. Students will step into the past as they explore the Manor House, play Victorian games, and learn about life at Kelmscott through immersive, hands-on activities. They’ll develop imaginative and descriptive writing skills as they send a postcard home from this unique holiday house.

Their workshops usually begin at 9.45am and finish at 2.15pm. Please get in touch if you have any time constraints – they will adjust the timings where possible. If you’d like to work with them on a longer project, speak to the Learning & Outreach Officer about how they can produce a programme of activities to take place onsite and in the classroom over a few weeks, a term, or even a full year.
