Raise much-needed funds for the Gallery while exploring your creative side in the beautiful surroundings of Lloyd Park.

For one day only the park will be transformed into an arts and crafts activity trail for people of all ages. Along the route you’ll meet special guest artists and there will be one or two surprises inspired by our collections. You’ll leave with your own work of art, created step-by-step along the trail. For those who like an extra challenge, why not come in costume inspired by William Morris? There will be prizes for the best dressed. Wellies highly recommended!

What to expect on the day

There will be a range of arts and crafts activities for all ages. These will include making a bird feeder from recycled materials to take home for the birds in your garden or balcony. Be inspired by the beautiful William Morris Garden in the grounds to decorate your feeder with plants and flowers that appear in Morris’s designs. Prizes for the best fancy dress include champagne afternoon tea for two in the William Morris Gallery Tea Room.

How your money will help

The Gallery displays the largest and most significant collection of William Morris’s work in the world. It is also at the centre of its local community – offering a wide range of high-quality learning experiences for people of all ages and backgrounds. All our activities are artist-led and the majority are free of charge. In order for us to develop our programmes for the under fives, families, young people (16-21), we need your help.
