Artists' Day: Creative Charcoal

Get inspired and create a woodland masterpiece.

  • Booking essential
  • Admission applies

With its twisting paths, dappled shade and the great, shimmering lake, there's plenty at Winkworth to get your creative juices flowing and inspire you to make great art.

Join us for the day and learn the ancient woodland skill of making charcoal, and then use your freshly made charcoal to recreate the landscape on paper.

What is Gift Aid?

Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points.

Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:

  • Gift Aid Admission
  • Standard Admission

If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.

Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.

An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below:

  Gift Aid Standard
Amount paid by visitor £11.00 £10.00
Tax refund from Government* £2.75 £0.00
Total received by the National Trust £13.75 £10.00
