MakeIt! Eanswythe’s Day – Anglo-Saxon Runes

Anglo-Saxon Alphabet pendants!

Folkestone’s patron saint St Eanswythe has her feast day every 12th of September. Eanswythe lived during the mid-600s – the time of the Anglo-Saxons; they used runes as a form of writing.

We’ll be making our own runes in celebration of Eanswythe, suggested donation £2.50 per participant.

Activities run downstairs in our learning space (11am-12.45pm and 1.30pm-3.30pm) and are suitable for ages 4-11, but if you’re older or younger you’ll still be more than welcome.

No booking is necessary, although if it gets a little busy we may have limits numbers for everyone’s comfort and safety.
