Our learning programme for primary schools will help pupils develop an understanding of their local heritage and its significance to world events.
At the time The Piece Hall was built, Halifax was the centre of the world’s woollen trade and the story of our space is one of Georgian England and the seeds of the industrial revolution.
The programme will include hands-on workshops, interactive tours and self-directed learning, accompanied by resources. There will be the opportunity to handle objects, try on costumes, explore our exhibitions and Grade I listed building all with a focus on inspiring young minds.
The learning programme will ensure:
We’re Going on a Cloth Hunt … an interactive journey through the cloth making process.
Shape Safari … an interactive tour and hunt for shapes around The Piece Hall. Inspired by the shapes found pupils will create their own print.
Medieval to Modern Merchant … Pupils will become archaeologists, using objects and stories to discover Halifax’s past, present and future.
Kersey to Jersey … Through this art and science workshop, pupils will learn the cloth-making process and will produce their own woven textiles to take back to school.
