hidden gems

Thurs 11 April 12.30-4.30pm  FREE Admission
Blackburn Museum
Meet Hilary Coddington Lewis and James Cunningham and hear stories about life in Blackburn when the museum was built. Work with local print maker Jacqui Sharples and discover how to make your own print to take home. Inspired by the museums beautiful print collection this drop in session will let the whole family try a new and exciting skill.
I've had the absolute pleasure of rummaging in the vaults of the museum and found some hidden gems, old wood type and a Victorian Model press that will be making a special appearance on the day. Could have spent all day clambering over type cases, there's a full print shop down there! The museum has some fantastic things on display and I highly recommend it, plenty for the kids to do too! I managed to find some old printing blocks too, not sure what they are but we'll print them on the day and find out ;)
To find out more about these wonderful hidden gems visit the wonderful things website, you can even make a day of it visiting other local museums. Hope to see you there!
