Be Inspired this Autumn at the Museum of East Dorset

Autumn has arrived at the Museum of East Dorset, and there is a jam-packed schedule of events to help celebrate this colourful time of year.

The September workshop programme kicks off with Discover Shibori on Thursday 14th. A chance to learn the art of stitched shibori and come away with your own dyed pieces of work.

On Tuesday 19th September, the popular Body Butter Making workshop returns. Make your own Body Butter using organic, vegan ingredients with Lytchett Bay Soaps.

Get your team together for a Fundraising Quiz night on Thursday 21st September. Test your knowledge in teams of 4, ticket price includes a bottle of wine.

Looking ahead to October, the diary is brimming with exciting events and workshops to inspire. A talk of The Lost Church of Wimborne All Hallows, an Exhibition by Wimborne Model Railway Society, Creative Calm Art and a Mosaic workshop, to name but a few. And not forgetting our own version of Call My Bluff!

As a small local museum, these events support our fundraising efforts, with profits going towards the running of the museum.

September is also the last chance to visit our current exhibition ‘Tinker, Tailor, Cappuccino Maker’. An insightful exhibition showcasing historical photographs from the museum’s collection alongside newly commissioned images of current day traders in Wimborne. Learn about shopkeepers from the past and those who proudly continue the tradition of independent trading in the town today.

The Museum, Tea Room and Garden are open Monday to Saturday 10am – 4.30pm.
