A CHANCE to try something new, learn a skill or indulge in a hobby is on offer in the stunning setting of Tatton Park.

This beautiful Cheshire parkland has launched an exciting new learning programme for 2024.

Whether its welly walking with the family to mark National Walking Day or learning how to perfect the art of smartphone photography, the scenery of this historic estate provides endless inspiration.

Education manager Laura Cunningham said: “We are thrilled to share our 2024 learning programme, which has been carefully curated to offer rich and varied opportunities for all ages and areas of interest.

“This workshop programme forms an important part of our wider learning offer for which we have been nationally recognised through the Sandford Award for Excellence in Heritage Education.”

Tatton Park’s world-famous Japanese Garden provides the perfect backdrop to get creative.

Japanese painting techniques workshops will be led by local artist, Ula Fung.

The Japanese art of creating a kokedama (moss globe) with local partner and plant specialists Green and Grounded is also on offer.

For flower lovers there is the opportunity to create a seasonal floral arrangement with local sustainable florist Sarah Hinchliffe from North and Flower.

The workshops are suitable for beginners with all materials included plus entry to the gardens.

On March 10, there is a special Mother’s Day wreath-making workshop, a lovely activity to do with mum on her special day!

To indulge little ones’ imaginations, the new programme includes magical storytelling tours around the gardens bringing to life characters and events from fairy tales.

Children can also to get hands on in the gardens and become a junior gardener for a morning.

Special historical workshops are being held in the Old Hall.

Youngsters can become a Viking warrior or shield maiden and learn about their way of life with help from Harald Bloodaxe, with interactive activities.
