The ‘Create Another World’ print workshop will take place in the Town’s Goods Shed. Use your imagination to create an image from another world or another time and make an etching of your design. Carving lines into a printing plate creates a pattern of small grooves. By adding ink then cleaning the surface of the plate, the grooves remain filled with colour and your design can be transferred onto a sheet of card under the immense pressure of the printing press. The prints are dry immediately and ready to take away. This fun activity is included in the admission price.
There will also be two self-led trails to follow around the Town and discover more about the Victorian era as well wonderful storytelling sessions. Afterwards tuck into some traditional fish and chips at the Fish Fryers or pop into the New Inn for some tasty refreshments.
