Hard times

Be introduced to the Victorians and explore lives of children in the past through characters found in the British Folk Art Collection.  Dress up in Victorian-style costumes and handle real and replica Victorian artefacts. Students will work in teams to design and create their own 3D replica Victorian shop signs, using a variety of mixed media.  This programme can be used to explore a theme in British History beyond 1066, changes in aspects of social history, lives of children through history or The Victorians.
