Don't miss the rest of our Workshop Wednesdays programme!

Each Wednesday in August, join us at the Cromwell Museum to explore what it was like to live in the 17th century through hands-on and creative activities. Become a civil war soldier, create prints with 17th century flowers and herbs, take part in spy training, and learn to ‘paint with stone’ by making your own pietra dura craft!
