Thursday 1 June | 10.30am to 12pm & 1pm to 2.30pm

£7.50 per child | £2.50 per adult
All children must be accompanied by an adult.

Make a colourful set of paper birds or butterflies to hang as decorations. You will learn about our local birds and butterflies and have a go at making the different body parts using paper shapes and a range of materials. You'll then assemble these into a complete bird or butterfly. When you have made a few of these you will learn how to put them together to create a mobile or garland.

Each child must be accompanied by one paying adult and your creations will be yours to take home and keep. Children must be able to use scissors and glue.

If you would like to join this event and have questions about accessibility, please contact Chatsworth Education at so we can discuss your specific requirements.

This workshop will take place in the Old Potting Shed in the garden. Please park in the main car park - parking is included with your ticket - before meeting a member of the learning team at the top garden entrance next to the Stables 10 minutes before the session starts.
