  • KS 2

  • Local History


Pupils explore our exhibitions to discover what jobs people did in Victorian Oldham. Artefacts and images from a variety of workplaces help bring history to life. With support from an artist, pupils then use replica work day artefacts to create an abstract industrial landscape through ‘mark making’ and printing or learn drawing and craft skills to create a pop-up millscape to take home.


Standard workshop £100

Standard in-house workshops last 2 hours and can be booked for the morning or afternoon.

Self-guided visits are free but please book in advance with the Education Assistant.
