Museum of Carpet – Groups
Stour Vale Mill, Kidderminster, Worcestershire, Worcestershire, DY10 1AZ
Once a thriving carpet factory, the Stour Vale Mill is now the only Museum of Carpet in the country. A centre of heritage, art and industry the museum celebrates the history of carpet design, the evolution of carpet manufacture and the heritage of those who worked in local industry through live demonstrations and clever interactives.
The Museum of Carpet is a fantastic resource for local and countrywide groups providing visits, covering topics of local, social and industrial history, designing and weaving.
Discover how carpets were made locally in Kidderminster then sold regionally, nationally and internationally. Meet Weavers, Spinners and ex-Carpet Industry Workers and find about how they lived and worked. Compare carpet weaving before and after the Industrial Revolution.
Take part in weaving workshops, see spinning demonstrations and watch our amazing power looms in action before trying your hand at our weaving inspired interactives
