Busy afternoon at the Museum

Busy afternoon at the Museum

A group of  over a dozen children had a busy afternoon at East Street Museum on Friday 1st September. They busied themselves making masks – of superheroes  such as Batman and Spiderman, also making pirate hats and elaborate tiaras. Bead threading was popular, making necklaces and bracelets.

 

The Museum also has a collection of children’s dressing up clothes – through the ages. Children were able to dress up as Romans through to Medieval knights, Regency and Georgians with a few pirates thrown in!

 

 

As the museum was open it attracted quite a number of adult visitors who were able to view the artefacts behind the children’s crafting tables.

 

Many thanks to the Museum helpers! Our volunteers do a marvelous job in many different ways helping the museum to thrive. September will continue to be busy at the Museum with a Coffee Morning on Saturday 16th September and the opening of the Pottery Exhibition to coincide with Rye Arts Festival. On September 26th  there will be a talk by Josh Cole of Rye Pottery. Next month members can look forward to a Gala Evening, raising funds for a new ‘Hops and Hopping ‘ exhibition. Do visit!  East Street Museum will be open every day during the Rye Arts Festival fortnight.
