Prescot is well known for being a ‘town of little workshops’, where watches were made by hand in the 18th and 19th centuries.
It was highly skilled work and the labour of one watch was divided in to specific specialised stages.
The THI is celebrating this history by delivering a session that explores how watches were actually made in Prescot with participants being given the chance to also have a go at one of the stages, all for FREE.
The workshop will be held in the Heritage Hub, 55 Eccleston Street, Prescot, 10 – 3pm on Saturday the 4th of March.
N.B There will be a 30 minute lunch break, please bring your own.
Places are limited to twelve so please contact Lyndsey-Jane.Kevan@knowsley.gov.uk or call 07773 575 856 to book a place.
