Join Molly Mahon for a block printing workshop in the newly decorated Pilgrims’ Room. Practice mixing colours and patterns with Molly before creating your own masterpiece/tea towel.

Before dinner on Wednesday, join Molly Mahon and Alex Polizzi for drinks in The Library.

After a good night’s sleep, return to The Pilgrims’ Room for a flower arranging masterclass with hotel florist Julia Marsden. Julia will demonstrate how to condition flowers and create a spectacular spiral arrangement you can take home.

Both workshops are suitable for beginners.
