Hastings Museum debuts weaving event, new films
If you're looking for something to do with your kids this weekend, there is a lot going on at the Hastings Museum. Executive Director Becky Matticks joined News 5 Friday morning to talk about the upcoming events.
Amy West: First and foremost, we want people to know that the Hastings Museum has not been vandalized in any way. It's part of an upcoming exhibit.
Becky Matticks: We are getting weavers and spinners on Saturday, the 16th. And they've already started to do a little hype with yarn bombs. Our statues have some yarn, some knitting on them. So there should be more coming. Keep watching.
Amy West: You're going to see more of this - not vandalization - at Hastings Museum. It's really interesting because people are going to get the chance to actually spin the yarn and to make these pieces of material.
Becky: Yes, we're going to have about 20 different stations with people that are weaving, spinning, bobbin lace, tatting, those things that your grandmother or great grandmother used to do.
Amy: A lost art.
Becky: Yes! So if you're in 4-H, Scouts, just interested you can come and watch or you can come take part and do it as well.
Amy: Sounds fantastic. And that's March 16th on Saturday from 1:00 to 4:00 pm. And then, also, this weekend, lots of films you might want to see.
Becky: You bet. We've had a lot of people calling in lately wanting to have certain films. This weekend is Lincoln, next weekend is Life of Pi and the third weekend is Monsters Inc. in 3D. So our 3D films, Life of Pi and Monster Inc. will look great on our big screen.
Amy: And Daniel Day Lewis from Lincoln, he recently won Best Actor at the Golden Globes. Don't want to miss that performance.
Becky: Yes, come this weekend. And then we've got Great Expectations. We're starting some theatrical performances and so you'll be able to see it. It was filmed last month in London at the West End and if you liked Les Mis and you liked Phantom of the Opera you will like Great Expectations.
Amy: Fantastic. Thank you so much. And if you want to find out more about these you can go to http://www.hastingsmuseum.org
