Youngsters recreated a ‘groovy’ fashion trend when they tie-dyed a range of footwear at a Bury St Edmunds museum.

Children were given a free pair of socks during a workshop focusing on the art form at Moyse’s Hall to produce a kaleidoscopic array of patterns.

The activity was one of a series aimed at youngsters during the museum’s Loving the 70s exhibition show-casing mementos from the era. It is part of the wider Saving the 70s project run in conjunction with museums in Suffolk and Hertfordshire.

Heritage officer Peter Jones said the workshops including making flying saucer sweets and mood jewellery have been ‘very popular’. A ‘Make a Muppet Puppet’ event will be held on Tuesday from 10.30am to 3pm.
