Throughout the autumn, Becca's holding a range of workshops for visitors to drop in and have a go at various creative techniques.
All of the sessions below are free (normal house/garden admission charges apply) and you're welcome to either pop in for ten minutes or create a masterpiece over a couple of hours. Which craft do you fancy trying?
Mixed media weaving
Thursday 8 September, 1 – 4pm, pop-up studio
Drop in and learn traditional weaving techniques using a range of materials. With a great range of colours and textures to choose from including wool, fabric and paper, you’ll create a unique piece to your own design.
Sunday 18 September, 11am – 3pm, vista
Head to the gazebo on the vista, where Becca will have a selection of tiles and tools to help you craft your own 2D print. Not tried printing before? This is perfect for beginners – just pop along and have a go.
Sunday 25 September, 1.30 – 3pm, pop-up studio
Have you seen Becca’s art installation, inspired by Nostell’s Etruscan vases? Join this workshop to have a go at creating your own piece using paper sculpting techniques.
Thursday 29 September, 11am – 3pm, Family Room
From beetroot and bright blooms in the Kitchen Garden to grass and leaves in the Pleasure Grounds, the natural world is full of vibrant colours. Head out with Becca to source great ingredients to turn into pigments and decorate paper structures.
Sunday 23 October, 11am – 3pm, Family Room
Drop in to this session to make your own thaumatrope and watch it spin into a story. You might be inspired by the Etruscan vases in Nostell’s collection and design silhouette figures to bring to life as you turn your new toy. This is a great activity for families.
Letter press postcards

Bring all the family and choose from a selection of letter blocks and coloured inks to create your own design. Who will you send your postcard to?
