A community resource for learning since 2002
Since 2008, we've been working with Creative and Media Diploma students at Backwell School to produce creative pieces of work inspired by Tyntesfield. This work has been supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, Find Your Talent, the Fred Linford Charitable Trust and media company Suited & Booted.
City of Bath College
Students studying Architectural Stone Conservation at City of Bath College have joined the Nimbus Conservation Ltd team conserving our orangery. The students have been working with our contractors on this project, to develop their understanding and practical skills over the course of a year.
Rambert Dance Company
In a project funded by the Find Your Talent scheme, members of the Rambert Dance Company led a week-long dance workshop at Tyntesfield in summer 2010. The workshop was followed by a performance in the gardens and the grand drawing room inside the house on Heritage Open Day in September.
Tyntesfield through the lens
A group of young people with special needs from Westhaven Special School supported children from Ashcombe Primary School in a partnership project between the National Trust, Weston Excellence and two local artists. The project was made possible thanks to funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund and Weston Excellence.
Tyntesfield Tale Trail
Funded by the Ernest Cook Trust and in partnership with North Somerset Art Week, this project was an opportunity for Creative and Media Diploma Students from Clevedon School to write, plan and develop a Story Trail at Tyntesfield. The young people designed everything, from the script to costumes and props, and performed at a public show.
