The cost of the day includes an artisan lunch, tea and coffees, and all tools and materials. Please note that the House is closed for conservation and there will be no tour included.

Suitable for all levels. This workshop aims to encourage you to visually record the things that surround you. By creating a visual journal you will be re interpreting them in an exciting way by experimenting with a range of media and techniques including collage, text, print and drawing.

Using the everyday things that surround us, visual memoirs can help us record dreams, fleeting moments, travels, places and experiences. Forge the habit of creativity and make an enduring and beautiful record of particular places and experiences that are special or important to you.
