The Arran Heritage Museum at Rosaburn in Brodick will be holding its second special event day of the season tomorrow (Sunday) as part of its 40th anniversary celebrations.

At the annual Craft Day visitors will be able to view all kinds of local traditional skills and crafts in action. Experts will demonstrate crafts including spinning and weaving, quilting, embroidery, hand-sewing and darning, washday routines, butter making, and lots more throughout the afternoon. Visitors will have the chance to join in and receive some basic tuition.  The event runs from 12.30pm to 3.30pm.

The Isle of Arran Pipe Band will be performing and other traditional music-making will also be evident throughout the afternoon. There will, of course, be the ever- popular tombola with great prizes, and Café Rosaburn will be serving up their delicious snacks.

This event will appeal to a wide audience and is an enjoyable day out for the whole family.
