October Half Term Events: Pomander Pumpkins

Workshop | 24, 25 & 26 October, 2:00 PM

For hundreds of years it was believed that if you breathed in a horrible smell it would cause you to become very unwell. As a protection, people would carry a scented ball called a pomander, which would be held to their nose if they were entering into a smelly area. Join the Museum team this half- term and make your own Halloween themed ‘pumpkin’ pomander.
