Halloween themed school holiday program at Eskbank House and Museum

Eskbank House and Museum will be running a Halloween themed school holiday program, including a workshop with Ludwina Roebuck and a drop-in craft session with Prue Mogg.

The program is an opportunity for families to spend time together over the school holidays whilst learning craft skills and making decorations for Halloween. Local artist Ludwina Roebuck will guide participants through the creative process of making Jack-‘O’-Lanterns. The creative ‘pumpkin heads’ will then be stacked on top of each other to create a nightmarish installation that will glow wildly in Main Street during Lithgow Halloween. To see some of Ludwina’s wonderfully quirky creations, you will find her installation shining over Pioneer Park in Main Street, produced as part of Tidy Town’s Laneways Project.

There’s something for the younger crafters too with Prue Mogg leading the popular Craftynoons, a drop-in session with free craft and afternoon tea. Families will be able to make lots of spooky characters and creatures to decorate their home in time for Halloween.
