Help make our enchanted mushroom lantern village for Christmas in the Gardens.
We’re working with artist Sohpie Handy to make 100 little mushroom houses from willow and tissue paper.
Spend a couple of hours with your friends of family learning and making with Sophie. Your creations will go into the Gardens to help make a magical, illuminated woodland walk ready for our weekends before Christmas. Be part of making it special for all our visitors – young and old, local and from further afield…Our mushroom village houses will be popping up all over the Garden … #wegrowtogether.
the woodland walk will be open for at least 4 special weekend days in December.. culminating in a Community Lantern Parade on the 16th December.
‘Mushroom makers’ who help on these making workshop days will get free refreshments on the day and, as a thank you, a token for free hot chocolate and marshmallows in our community Lantern Parade on 16th Dec.
It takes about 2-3 hours to make the lanterns, and its probably best for children over 7years old .
Pop in on the days .. or contact us here for more info, or if your group can come another time
A great family, club or class event. These workshops are free.
(entrance to the lantern events and walk weekend days is £3)
