Dre-fach Felindre's National Wool Museum is the place to visit this Easter if you're looking for a whole lot of woolly fun!

Join in the activities at the museum, part of the Amgueddfa Cymru – National Museum Wales family, throughout the school holidays. From 3D weaving to a fantastic family trail, there's something for everyone this Easter at the National Wool Museum. Curator, Sally Moss, says:

“We've put together a great programme of activities for the Easter holidays here at the National Wool Museum, this year. As well as activities in the museum itself, we've also been working on a new Village Trail around Dre-fach Felindre, to find out why it was once called the Huddersfield of Wales and visitors over the holidays can be among the first to try this out.”

Activities are available throughout the holiday season, with the 3D weaving workshops taking place between Thursday 13 April and Monday 17 April. (Space is limited) Turn up at the museum for any other activities. Children must be accompanied by an adult. For more information ring Kate Evans, Education Officer on 01559 370 929.
