Victorian Christmas Advent Calendar Workshop on Friday 22 November 2019 2.00pm. £10/person

Join the lovely people at Riddle’s Court in creating a fun and minimal waste reusable advent calendar inspired by the Victorian love of Christmas and the work of Patrick Geddes.

During this workshop you will create a simple reusable advent calendar together. You will be taking inspiration from the work of Patrick Geddes by decorating your calendar using simple motifs and shapes from nature. You will also be invited to write meaningful seasonal notes to go inside each ‘door’ of the calendar.

A lovely way to make your Christmas merry, bright and a little bit more eco-conscious too.

Recommended for children ages 7+
