EVER TRIED SPINNING AND WEAVING? COME TO THE CATER AND HAVE A GO!

Billericay's Cater Musum Curator, Chris Brewster, is never short of ideas when it comes to attracting visitors.   Her upcoming Textile Exhibition starting 9th to 25 July will certainly be of interest to people of all ages, particularly those with a love of history. 

On Saturday 16 July from noon until 5pm, Chris is inviting children of all ages to "Have a Go" and see how simple it is to create the most wonderful braids and pieces of woven material from Inkle Looms and Lucets.   People dressed in period costume will be in the Museum that day and we will also be honoured by the presence of Mr Peter Brierley who most certainly knows a thing or two about weaving and associated crafts.

Also on display, as ever,  is our beautiful garden with so many unusual plants and herbs, many dating back to the Elizabethan period.   Do come!
