Architecture Through Time Workshop at Sutton House

A half open door reveals the Little Chamber with a lit fire and thick, opaque light pouring through the widows

Come and explore 500 years of architectural history all under one roof.

At Sutton House, we have examples of Tudor and Georgian architecture side by side, along with innovations brought in by Victorians. It couldn't be easier to compare these different styles, and all under one roof.

 In this workshop, we compare and contrast our building, and buildings more generally, through these ages. We explore the house in a tour that encourages the children to develop their powers of observation, deduction and historical enquiry before having a go at sketching contrasting architectural features and building your very own 'wattle and daub' wall.

This workshop is designed for KS2, but a varient of it could be created for KS1 if required.
