FAMILY activities at the Brontë Parsonage Museum begin this year with the first Wild Wednesday! workshop.

Curious Cards is the title of the half-term holiday event on February 14, running from 11am to 4pm.

A spokesman said: “We’ll get into the spirit of St Valentine’s Day, as well as the Brontës’ very romantic novels.

“You can make a little origami card and an envelope for that secret someone special. Or your pet dog... or whoever you like!”

Wild Wednesday! workshops will run every Wednesday during the school holidays in 2018 and allow children to drop in and create something amazing to take home with them.

The Easter holidays will see a Welcome Wednesday! workshop on April 4 devoted to Extraordinary Eggs, when children can use different dyes and techniques to make colourful eggs.

Marvellous Maps is the title of the workshop on April 11, also from 11am to 4pm, focusing on the Brontës’ love of creating maps.

The siblings used maps as a way of telling stories of their imaginary worlds and they had great fun inventing places and making up names. One of Branwell’s was called Sneaky Land.
