Washday: Virtual Workshop

What was it like to have to wash and dry clothes before we had washing machines and electricity? Come and meet Marged to find out how she washed clothes in the olden days. You’ll see her using the washtub, washboard and the mangle, then have the opportunity to explore further with our facilitator and see some of the objects more closely. I wonder what you will discover about how things have changed and what has remained the same?
