Springtime fun this weekend down at the Waterfront

Easter maybe over, but there’s still lots on at the National Waterfront Museum.

This weekend (Saturday 7 May at 2pm) visitors can get to grips with researching their family tree using the census to help track down ancestors or long-lost family and friends. With the help of the Glamorgan Family History Society, this bookable workshop is perfect for anyone who is curious about their past. Please contact (01792) 638950 to reserve a place.

Throughout the weekend, the Museum promises to be transformed into a haven for those who enjoy creativity and imagination.

Spring Enamelling, led by local artist Maggie Jones will give visitors the chance to discover this fascinating technique using powered glass and copper. Participants will also be able to take home the piece they design and create. At £6 per person, the workshop will run on Saturday and Sunday at 10.30am and 2.30pm. It is suitable for those aged 16 and over and booking is recommended (01792) 638950.

The monthly instalment of Make & Mend will also take place on Saturday at 1.30pm, this time with a plants and flowers theme. Using entirely recycled and vintage sourced materials, those taking part will create a variety of floral accessories from corsages and brooches to hair pins and necklaces. For just £3 per person, this workshop is for those aged 16 and over and booking is required (01792) 638950.

Then on Tuesday 10 May, parents and toddlers can enjoy Welsh Fun Time for Tots, a morning of Welsh singing, storytelling and crafts led by Menter Iaith and Twf, an organisation which gives parents advice on the advantages of using Welsh in the home and raising children bilingually. No booking is required just drop in between 10.30am and 12pm.
