Family art workshop

by StirlingCastle 1. November 2011 09:23

It’s time to get those creative juices flowing. This Sunday, November 6th is the second of our Family Art Workshops, led by our Artist in Residence, Iona Leishman. The workshop will be based around castle characters so there is plenty of inspiration to fuel the imagination.  The workshop is ideal for primary school age children who must be accompanied by an adult but don’t worry you can take part too! The price is £2.50 on top of the standard admissions price. For more information or to book a place call 01786 431325.

On 12th and 13th November we get creative with cooking. We are offering the chance to discover the delights of 16th century cuisine. Forget Jamie Oliver or the Hairy Bikers, our very own ex chef and now castle steward, Sandy Easson, is taking you back in time to learn about such delicacies as stuffed rabbit or stewed sparrow!

Not only will you learn about the delights of medieval catering, you can also take the place of a  as servant in the royal court. Sandy will also cover court etiquette so there is no chance of a social faux pas.
