The beautiful Cathedral building is full of, and has inspired, art & craft for hundreds of years.

St Albans Cathedral runs a variety of workshops which draw inspiration from this. These include Clay Tiles, Roman Mosaics, Stained Glass, Brass Rubbing and Illuminated Lettering. At the end of each workshop, all students will have produced a piece of art to take back to school with them.

Most schools combine two activities, usually a trail and a workshop, to make a whole day of their visit. Trails include drama and costumes to help pupils develop their learning, whilst most workshops allow them to create a piece of artwork to take home at the end of the visit.
