Over the summer we are working with ACE Action Ely Caerau (Communities First) to put together a series of fun and accessible family workshops and activities for local families. The programme was developed ahead of time with ACE and includes sessions such as:
Wash Day with Beti Bwt
Rag Rug Making
Life in the Iron Age
So far we have had lots of fun making rag rugs, learning about and playing with traditional toys, discovering what life was like for our ancestors living in the Iron Age and experiencing what it was like to go to school in Victorian Wales.
Here’s a snap shot of some of the feedback from the children and parents who have come along
“I love it here and I had fun.”
“Had a really enjoyable afternoon, learning to make rag rugs. Very interesting. Will definitely carry this on. Thank you to all concerned.”
“I really enjoyed playing with the toys.”
“I've learnt lots!”
"I thought it was very fun, but I would not want to go to school in Victoria times."
There are still lots more sessions to come so follow this blog to learn how the rest of the summer goes!
This week we have also started a new programme of exciting storytelling, reading and activity workshops with Cardiff Libraries. These are open to everyone and will be taking place on Monday’s and Wednesday’s at St Fagans until 24th August so why not come along next time!
If you are interested in taking part in other similar family activities and events at St Fagans over the summer there are lots of opportunities to get involved, just check our What’s On guide for more information.
