Volunteers' Week: Teulu'r Eryr, Making Rope

This event has finished. 35 June 2014, 11.00am - 1.00pm, 2 - 4.00pm
Volunteers week

Come and see our staff and volunteers making rope out of nettles for our Iron Age Farm, Bryn Eryr.

The build of Bryn Eryr Iron Age Farm is an exciting new addition to St Fagans National History Museum as part of its redevelopment. With the help of the volunteers working with the Historic Buildings Unit and schools, we hope to do something unique and re-build an important structure that has been hidden in the earth for 2,000 years.

We have received funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Welsh Government to completely transform the visitor experience. Over the next five years developments will include a new entrance hall, learning facilities, new galleries and historic buildings including a medieval Welsh prince’s hall.
