Activities will include a session on Shakespeare, where children can create a quill.

Danielle Daglan, Cultural Services Manager at Craven District Council, said:

"Our summer craft workshops are always very popular and these online activities are the perfect way to keep the whole family happy.

"They are suitable for children of all ages and each activity will use simple, everyday objects that can be found around the home or tailored to suit the materials you do have at home.

"In each activity children will get the chance to explore an exciting part of Craven’s history through special museum objects, and make their own treasures."

The activities on offer will include creating historical costumes, discovering natural patterns in prints, and making collages of Craven landmarks.
