About

Join the team at Museum Meet-up at Pontefract Castle once a month on a Wednesday evening to have the chance to meet new people, learn about your local area and get hands-on with some creative fun!


Each month explores a different craft theme, whilst having the opportunity to chat and enjoy a brew and a biscuit.


June 5:


We’ll be making fun wet felted keyrings inspired by textiles in the museum collection.


July 17:


We’ll be having a go at Tetra Pak prints inspired by architectural items from the museum’s collection and houses and buildings around Pontefract.


August 14:


We’ll be bundle dyeing using natural dyes to make ribbons and patches inspired by the museum’s historical textiles and the dyes in the herb garden at Pontefract.


September 11:


We’ll be making thumb pots and slab vases inspired by ceramics in the museum collection.




All sessions will start in the Activity Zone at Pontefract Castle.
