Art and design and literacy skills meet in this creative session inspired by the Kelmscott Press. Students will explore the house and the gardens, try their hand with a quill, and combine printmaking and creative writing to produce a book page in the style of William Morris.

For schools on an Artsmark journey and for those wanting to add another creative layer to their visit, for an additional £4 (which covers the cost of the certificates) students taking part in this session can gain an Arts Award Discover.

Their sessions usually begin at 9.45am and finish at 2.15pm. Please get in touch if you have any time constraints – they will adjust the timings where possible. If you’d like to work with them on a longer project, speak to the Learning & Outreach Officer about how they can produce a programme of activities to take place onsite and in the classroom over a few weeks, a term, or even a full year.
