‘Time’ is alarmed about the pace of change and has locked all the heritage crafts away for safe keeping. But in doing so these crafts have been forgotten and unused and are in danger of being lost forever.
The Master Crafter is in a race against Time to try and save these special skills and techniques and unlock them before they're forgotten. Now’s the hour in which you chose your trail route. Will you unlock these crafts or keep them hidden?
Join forces with the Master Crafter to unlock these heritage crafts from the constraints of Time. Help them to solve riddles and puzzles to revive the different crafts this Christmas.
Or become one of Time’s ‘Minute Minions’ and help keep these crafts locked away for Christmas and beyond!
A house decorated for Christmas: See the five ground floor rooms of the house decorated for a Heritage Crafts themed Christmas. This year we’re celebrating the traditional skills and techniques of crafts on the ‘red list’. Many of the treasures inside the house have been designed, made, and shaped by these heritage crafts over the centuries. From globe making to illumination, flock wallpaper to harp making, see each room filled with handmade decorations crafted by our staff and volunteers which celebrate some of the endangered heritage techniques and skills.
