You will have the opportunity to create your own edible hanging basket in this special Master Class.

Then you will be able to plant up your creation and take it home to enjoy all summer. Our Master Classes guarantee that there will be no more than 8 participants, meaning that you will get the chance to ask as many questions as you like, and that the workshop can be tailored around what the group want to know.

Children will get the chance to design a cope, make an origami mitre or work on a Bishop portrait puppet! Alongside the craft activities, there will be a picture trail to follow to link the activities with the Palace, Chapel and Gardens.
