There will be half term activities on a printing theme at Amberley Museum this autumn. This fun drop-in workshop will get the whole family exploring different printmaking techniques.
Younger children can explore patterns as they print their own marbled paper. With a 36 acre site and several woodland walks at Amberley, there will be plenty of autumn inspiration all around with the opportunity to create some beautiful leaf prints on fabric. Relief printing will also be available – the lines and shapes carved into the printing block will have no ink on them and the print will reveal the parts that haven‘t been carved. After trying out the activities, visitors will be able to visit one of the most extensive working print shops in the south east and see some of the historic printing presses in operation.
Suitable for all ages with equipment provided, these drop-in workshops will run from 11am-1pm and 2-4pm from Wednesday 30 October to Friday 1 November. In addition to these half term activities, the narrow-gauge railway and historic buses will be in operation, together with all the usual exhibition areas in the former chalk and lime quarry.
Gift-aided tickets are £15 for adults, £13 for concessions and £8 for children aged 4-15 (under 5s free). Family tickets start at £31. Amberley Museum is open 10am until 4.30pm Wednesdays to Sundays, with last entry one hour before closing. The Limeburners Café serves a variety of sandwiches and snacks with hot food at lunchtime.
