Burravoe Primary School

Shetland Museum


Today we went to the museum in Lerwick to learn a bit more about crofting. We had our piece, then went with Steven (our guide) to see the miniature crofting area. We talked about how we had roads and fences and back then they didn’t. We then went to look at the croft house. We saw that the house back then was really different than the ones we have right now. The house was made out of stones, metal, straw and driftwood. We went to the Learning Room and filled in question sheets about what we had learned and seen. Christine came and did carding with us. We all had our own little carding boards to work with, we used wool strait of the sheep. Carding is what you do before you use a spinning wheel. We had our lunch then went for a look in the gallery.
