CHILDREN are being given the chance to make their very own versions of Hatch, the dog that accompanied crew aboard the Mary Rose centuries ago.
The ‘make and take’ craft sessions are being run by the Mary Rose Museum throughout half-term and offer youngsters the chance to get creative and take their work home.
Hatch’s job as the ship’s ‘ratter’ was to ensure the rat population aboard the Mary Rose was kept to a minimum.
The event is free and is suitable for children over six with a valid ticket.
Children must be accompanied by an adult.
It is being held at the Mary Rose Museum at Portsmouth’s Historic Dockyard from 11am to 1pm and 2pm to 4pm except on Thursday.
The sessions will run until Friday, May 29.
