Do you wish you could capture the beauty of the landscape on paper? But where to begin?
Join us to learn how to get started when faced with a blank sheet of paper. Whether you have sketched before or have never picked up a pencil, this workshop will help you learn what to include in your composition and help you get inspired to try new techniques and styles. Explore the Garden at Lyme and try out your new skills.
All equipment will be provided but if you have materials such as sketch books or pencils you would like to use please bring them along. Access to a camera would also be useful, but is not required.

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:
|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|
