Potions Family Fun Session
We've been inspired by the history of Guildford House for August's Family Fun Session.

When it was built in 1660, the mistress of Guildford House made all the family's beauty products, medicines and home cleaning items using different herbs and plants.





21 September at Guildford House Gallery - we will show you the ropes for making Thaumatropes!

Design and make your own thaumatrope, a scientific toy created in the 19th century.

We just love the one from our collection that inspired this drop-in workshop.
