We are once again thrilled to welcome to Muncaster Castle, Phillipa Turnbull (who together with her daughter Laura, run the Crewel Work Company), Jacqui Hyman (expert in Textile Conservation) and their amazing group of volunteers who are due to visit us again from Sunday 14th – Thursday 18th August 2016.

This dedicated group of volunteers regularly visit Muncaster to help us maintain, care for and record the incredible textile collection here at the castle.

During the week the volunteers will be working on the crewel work collection, children’s clothing and the lace collection.  The majority of the work will be taking place while the castle is open and it will be possible to see our volunteers working with the collection.  We also hope to add some photographs of the work throughout the week.
