Family Half Term Workshop | Rose Queen Crown

Make a flower crown fit for a Rose Queen!

From the 1880s, the Rose Queen festival, mostly held in June, became a major annual event in towns and villages across the UK, especially in Lancashire.

Taking inspiration from some of the photographs of Rose Queens in our exhibition Wild & Cultivated Fashioning the Rose and the Queen’s Platinum Jublilee, children can make a flower crown fit for a Rose Queen. They will learn how to make tissue paper roses and then decorate their ‘crown’.

This activity will take place in the Clore Learning Space. Entry to the Museum is included with the ticket. We ask that you read our Garden Museum visitor charter before your visit.

Ticket price £2.50 per child (accompanying adults go free), includes everything you need for the workshop.
