Gayle Mill is opening its doors to help children discover more about its history and farming roots.
The mill in Hawes, North Yorkshire, is holding an open morning to teach children more about the role it played making gates for local farmers during lambing season.
Young visitors can also enjoy arts and crafts, including making wooden plant pot holders and lamb-shaped wool pom pom key rings.
Samantha Belcher, education co-ordinator at the mill, said: "Our family events are always great fun and we hope some young people will be inspired to be craftspeople and work with wood in the future."
The event takes place on May 5 from 10am to 12pm, entry costs £2 and under fives go free. Entry includes a hot drink and pom pom activity. Wood working activities are £3.
