As many village residents will know, the Framework Knitters Museum is currently undergoing major redevelopment works to expand the museum space into an adjoining building and create a brand new visitor attraction.
Over the summer, the museum is offering unique opportunities to be amongst the first to see how the new museum is shaping up, and to be part of creating this handmade site.
On Saturdays throughout July and August, groups of up to 6 people can book exclusive visits to tour the site and explore spaces that no one usually sees.
You’ll find out what it takes to bring back historic interiors and enjoy the artwork that artists have been inspired to create for the museum. You can even make your own souvenir on an antique knitting machine, or help create the cottage interiors by placing a historic object in its new home.
“Behind the Scenes” visits cost £10 per group. Places are limited and Covid-secure measures will be in place throughout the site to keep visitors, staff and volunteers safe. Please visit www.frameworkknittersmuseum.org.uk to book your tour online.
