Week 7: Patterns

18/19 October

From brick work to mosaics, how many patterns can you find at the Palace? Inspired by our findings we will create a patterned pot.


Accompanying adult and babies are free. Please note, children must be accompanied by one adult. All Palace explorers sessions are now held outdoors to adhere to the current Covid-19 guidelines and keep everyone as safe as possible. Indoor sessions will only be held in the event of very poor weather following strict procedures. The group size is now smaller, with only eight slots available for each session; in order to keep our group small, only one adult can attend per child. To safely hold Palace explorer sessions we are carefully following guidelines in line with government Covid procedures. This will include hand hygiene, social distancing and limited sharing of resources.
