Group Visits

Bring your group to the Museum of Carpet for a fascinating exploration of the history of carpet making. Depending on your group’s interests you can pick one of the visits below:

Carpet Pattern and Design

Find out how fashions have influenced carpet design and how tastes have changed over time. Be inspired by original unique hand painted designs from the museum archive. Meet retired designers and discover the secret of their success. See how designs progress from paper to loom.


Carpet People and Production

Discover how carpets were made locally in Kidderminster then sold regionally, nationally and internationally. Meet Weavers, Spinners and ex-Carpet Industry Workers and find about how they lived and worked. Compare carpet weaving before and after the Industrial Revolution. See spinning demonstrations and watch our giant power looms in action.
