What’s On

This year we have retained our exhibition, ‘350 Years of the Blanket Industry’ in our Bartlett Taylor Gallery. Additionally, the handloom is being reconditioned by a former Early’s engineer and weaving demonstrations will feature at a future date.

A new resource within the museum is a collection of local history books, pamphlets and records, available to view by appointment.


‘Have-a-Go Day!’

On Saturday 13th August 2022 10am to 4pm – Entry will be free – donations welcome!

The museum will have various crafts being demonstrated, including:

– Weaving on the newly restored loom
– Corn dolly making
– Tatting and lace making
– Peg doll making
– Friendship bracelet making

You will also be able to learn about the history of Witney blankets through time, see the matchstick models of the Buttercross and St Mary’s Church (complete with monkey), as well as the 1950’s kitchen and many other interesting local items. Come and have a go and learn how to spin yarn using a drop spindle!
