Join artist and illustrator Angela Harding for a special one-day Christmas workshop. Inspired by the work of artists in the Kettle’s Yard collection, Angela will show you how to create your own beautiful advent window or card.

Starting with a private tour of the House, you will have the opportunity to see examples of block printing on permanent display as well as several works from the reserve collection at Kettle’s Yard, not usually on display or accessible to the public. Angela will give a short demonstration of how she produces work and will be happy to answer any questions.

You will make your own advent window or card to take home.

Tickets are £170, booking required
