Raise much-needed funds for the William Morris Gallery while exploring your creative side in the beautiful surroundings of Lloyd Park.
On 22nd March, for one day only, the park will be transformed into an arts and crafts activity trail for people of all ages. Along the route you’ll meet special guest artists and there will be one or two surprises inspired by the gallery’s collections. You’ll leave with your own work of art, created step-by-step along the trail. For those who like an extra challenge, why not come in costume inspired by William Morris? There will be prizes for the best dressed. Wellies highly recommended!
There will be a range of arts and crafts activities for all ages. These will include making a bird feeder from recycled materials to take home for the birds in your garden or balcony. Be inspired by the beautiful William Morris Garden in the grounds to decorate your feeder with plants and flowers that appear in Morris’s designs. Prizes for the best fancy dress include champagne afternoon tea for two in the William Morris Gallery Tea Room.
Art Miles is a new fundraising initiative organised by the Art Fund, the national fundraising charity for art, to help raise money for museums and galleries. It is a fun, cultural walk of approximately three miles in the grounds of the participating venues for people to support their local museum or gallery by raising money.
