Victorian Easter Card Workshop - March 21
The introduction of the halfpenny stamp in the 1870s made it more affordable to send greeting cards, creating a card-sending craze. Christmas was the main holiday for mailing cards but soon Easter became a popular time to send unique cards. Registrar Virginia Cooper leads this workshop where participants can view Easter cards from the permanent collection and create their own versions. No experience necessary.
