Teenagers will be able to take a trip back in time at Cobb and Co Museum’s heritage workshops.

The Just Make It Workshops Program will be held during the Easter school holidays from April 14-17.

The program will kick off with silversmithing on April 14 where participants will make silver rings. Just in time for winter, participants will be able to make a brightly coloured and textured wool scarf in the felting workshop on April 15.

A multicoloured leather belt is the project in the leather plaiting workshop on April 16 and in the blacksmithing workshop on April 17 participants will make a coat and hat hook.

Museum Director Deborah Tranter says the Just Make It workshops program was developed because of the many requests by young people to participate in the heritage trades workshops.

"This program has been specifically designed to cater to teenagers and every participant will finish the day with a unique item they have made themselves," she says.

"These programs will also enable the students to decide if they wish to continue to develop these skills by doing further training."

Each workshop will cost $140 per child which includes expert instruction, materials and morning and afternoon tea and lunch.
