Victorians at St Johns – upstairs downstairs
|Key stage||1 and 2|
St John’s House, Warwick
This workshop is usually booked alongside other Victorian’s at St Johns workshops as part of a whole day’s programme of activity. We can accommodate groups of 90 at St Johns House Museum. If your group is larger please call to discuss.
Compare the lives of working class and wealthy Victorian families using our model houses. Explore how these homes were lit and how people kept clean. Examine Victorian domestic techniques using original objects and learn about the difference between family life, servants and education for rich and poor families.
Children will play the roles of different members of the household and the workshop includes the chance to try on some Victorian clothing.
