Family Crafts

Wednesday 23 and Thursday 24 February 2022, 11am - 2pm

Find us in the Undercroft for some family craft fun this February half term. Get messy making a clay tile and decorate it with natural prints from the world around you - just like William De Morgan did when creating his famous tiles.

Or why not have a go at helping the local wildlife and make your own pinecone bird feeder to take home and hang in your garden. You can then tick off 'No. 43 Help a wild animal' from your '50 things to do before you're 11 3/4 list.

£1.50 per craft, normal admission costs apply, no booking required.
