Thomas Chippendale has inspired designer-makers through centuries and his influence can still be felt today. Get inspiration from his designs in the house and put them to a test in the workshop.

Family taking part in a craft workshop at Nostell, West Yorkshire.

We are celebrating the diversity of Chippendale’s career, in a range of creative activities for families. This summer we are having fun with marbling paper and using it in a variety of creative pursuits. We will be dabbling in book binding and trying out making our own panes of wallpaper. Join us on Thursdays and Fridays in school holidays to try out different materials tools and techniques and discover the designer within you.
