'Stitch in Time' Summer Activities
Join the friendly and informative ‘Stitch in Time’ group every Wednesday at Carmarthenshire Museum, 1-3pm, during the summer holidays for some fascinating demonstrations.
These activities are inspired by the final painting of our National Gallery Masterpiece Tour – on show from 8 September 2023. ‘Tobias and the Angel’, from the workshop of Andrea del Verrocchio, explores themes of care, health and protection that you’ll find in the creations the Stitch in Time group will be demonstrating.
No need to book and no need to bring materials. Just bring yourself on the day!
