Re: Felt making

That's brilliant, thanks for the quick reply and all the info for me to have a look at over the Bank Holiday and hopefully have a go myself!

I'll look up Guisborough and see if it's possible for me to get there (I'm in Sheffield). I'm due a day out!

Felt making

Hi apologies if this isn't on the correct forum, but wasn't sure where to put it. I work in a museum running Tudor workshops and I'd like to introduce felt making into the day. I've read up about how to make it, but all the methods I have found involve using bubble wrap, which obviously can't be aut...

Re: Preparing a new wooden butter churn for use

Just to say again, thanks for everyone's help. I used the butter churns today and they worked a treat. 2 are not leaking at all, 1 has a bit of a leak, but the children using them were slopping more over the top anyway, so it didn't really matter. Just another little problem to sort out - after soak...

Re: Preparing a new wooden butter churn for use

Thanks for your help, everyone. Now got one watertight and the other two with slow drips, so it looks like they're usable. I love the idea about leaving a bit of water in each churn with some Milton, but unfortunately, unless they're completely leakproof I'll just make a mess! At least I can store t...

Re: Preparing a new wooden butter churn for use

I haven't, although I had a feeling they needed soaking. When I rang the supplier I asked about that and she said she didn't want to advise anything she didn't really know about. Should it be hot/warm/cold water? Thanks for your help.

Preparing a new wooden butter churn for use

Please can someone help. I have just received 3 new spruce butter churns from a well known re-enactors suppliers. It is obvious that they are going to leak as we can see daylight through some of the joints. I am a butter making virgin, so don't really know how to solve this problem. We have also pur...

Small but (fairly!) authentic Tudor fabric samples wanted pl

Hi all I've just discovered this wonderful site after what seems like hours googling on a rainy Bank Holiday afternoon! I work in a museum delivering Tudor educational sessions, in a Tudor house, to parties of primary school children on visits. I am always trying to find ways of improving the experi...
