The Story of Wee Peggy Lee and the Looms

 A fun filled visit for Key Stage 1, telling the story of how carpets were made in Kidderminster through stories and song.

Meet Wee Peggy the spinning wheel and her friends Victoria and Albert the hand looms, and Spool and Wilton the power looms.  They will show you how to transform a dirty sheep’s fleece into beautiful woven carpets.  Enjoy hearing the story of Wee Peggy and the Looms, with lots of audience participation, dressing-up and singing.  Plenty of hands on activities including creating a piece of woven cloth to take back to school.

You can combine this visit to the museum with workshops led by Heather Wastie, Worcestershire Poet Laureate.  She will visit your school and inspire your students to create and perform their own poetry, informed by their visit to the Museum.
