Crafty way to spend half-term

Macclesfield Express - - MAC­CLES­FIELD PEO­PLE -

THERE is a host of half term fun on of­fer from the Mac­cles­field Mu­se­ums this week.

The group, which runs the Silk Mu­seum, The Old Sun­day School, West Park Mu­seum and Par­adise Mill, has planned a va­ri­ety of events to en­ter­tain for chil­dren (and adults!) of all ages, start­ing to­day, Wed­nes­day, Oc­to­ber 29.

Visit the Old Sun­day School to make silk moth mo­biles, telling the story of a silk moth’s jour­ney from the mul­berry leaf to fully fledged moth.

This will be fol­lowed, on Thurs­day, Oc­to­ber 30, and Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 31, by Hal­loween-themed craft clubs at the Silk Mu­seum.

These ses­sions are for chil­dren aged six to 11 and al­low them to make jump­ing witches and scary ghosts to take home.

All four Mac­cles­field Mu­se­ums are open over the half term hol­i­day and chil­dren get in free. Silk Moth Mo­biles is a drop-in ses­sion which costs £2 and runs from 1.30pm-3.30pm. It takes place at The Old Sun­day School, Roe Street, Mac­cles­field, SK11 6UT.

Hal­loween Craft Club is a book­able ses­sion, which costs £6.50 and runs from 10am-noon. It takes place at the Silk Mu­seum, Park Lane, Mac­cles­field, SK11 6TD.

Call 01625 613210 to book a place, or for more in­for­ma­tion on the events, visit silk­mac­cles­ uk.
