Throughout the year we hold many Special Events based around themes taken from the life and times of Mrs Smith.

Special activities can sometimes be organised for a school party group visit to add some fun to any history curriculum.

Cooperative effort to make a colourful rag rug

A popular event is the Rag Rug Workshop - pegging together a rug for the floor from scraps of old material. Visit the Rag Rug Page to see the projects.

Our Victorian Washdays have proved very popular with children dressing up and making do with the old dolly tub and mangle and bags of 'blue' that were the height of technology - finishing up with hanging everything on the cottage washing line!
You can see the result on the WashDay Page

Due to closure for repairs, no special events can be held at the cottage
