Volunteering at the Quaker Tapestry is a very rewarding experience where you can meet new people, have fun, share your knowledge, learn new skills, make new friends, take on a challenge and share the fascinating stories within the Quaker Tapestry.

The Quaker Tapestry offers a scope of work where our small team of staff and volunteers are involved in sharing a variety of tasks – everyday is different!

Our volunteers are vital to the success of the Quaker Tapestry, giving many hours of their time, commitment, expertise and dedication each year.


Volunteers help us in many different ways and without them we would be unable to provide the superb service that visitors enjoy so much.

Have a look at the Volunteer Blog posts to get an idea of what our volunteers are getting up to.

Volunteers are always at the ready to help us with almost every aspect of our work, these are a few of the most popular roles of volunteering:

  • welcoming visitors to the Quaker Tapestry museum in Kendal
  • helping with the Quaker Tapestry Roadshows around the country in a variety of ways
  • giving talks about the Quaker Tapestry to interested groups around the country
  • administration
  • fundraising
  • marketing

We would love to hear from you if you are interested in volunteering for us in any capacity.

We can provide accommodation for visiting volunteers who wish to stay for two weeks in our self contained cottage flat in Kendal.
