Palace explorers: Patterns at the Palace – Nature
Discover the patterns hidden throughout the Palace!
Palace explorers are weekly hands-on workshops for children ages 2 – 4 and their adults, with each week exploring a new element of Fulham Palace. This term is all about patterns at the Palace.
Patterns can be found everywhere around you — including at Fulham Palace! Together we’ll search for patterns hidden in different areas of the Palace such as the chapel, garden and historic rooms.
Week 3: 27 & 28 June – Patterns in nature
Stripes on bees, shapes on butterfly wings and hedges forming a maze, what patterns have you seen in nature? We’ll venture into the woods and then to the garden and look for interesting patterns.
Week 4: 4 & 5 July – Patterns above
Let’s look up in Bishop Sherlock’s room! We’ll follow the serpentine curves and spiral lines that create the rococo design of the ceiling.
Week 5: 11 & 12 July – Hidden wallpaper patterns
We’ll work together to unravel the mystery of the Great Hall’s wallpaper by putting together a special jigsaw.
Week 6: 18 & 19 July – Summer party patterns
Did you know Fulham Palace is famous for its summer parties? Both Queen Elizabeth I and Queen Elizabeth II have joined and been guests at the fabulous summer parties in Fulham. We’ll organise a summer party filled with patterns and invite a special guest of honour.
