Share this article

Families are welcome at a new family arts workshop at Strutt’s North Mill tomorrow (Friday, April 12).

The workshop runs from 10am to 12pm and will give children and their parents the opportunity for hands-on work, based on objects recently acquired by the museum and artefacts already in the collection.

Sarah Laman of Fleet Arts, who is leading the session, said: “We are going to look at the portraits recently bought at auction by the museum, then make a portrait of someone close to you, or your pet, as well as a frame.”

Anyone interested in taking part should phone the Mill to book a place or take a chance and just turn up on the day, although advanced booking is recommended.

The workshops are all free of charge and all children must be accompanied by an adult.

For more information and to book a place, please phone Strutt’s North Mill on 01773 880474 during opening hours of 1pm to 5pm, Wednesday to Sunday.

Details of all events at the Mill are available on the website
