Come to Pontefract Castle and take part in creative activities and relaxed crafts on the theme of plants.

See, touch or smell herbs and plants from the medieval garden. Use plants to make art in different ways. Press leaves and flowers in clay. Print with leaves. Make a paint brush from plants.

This will be a relaxed session, with a friendly welcome. Stay as long or short as you want to.

It will take place in the Activity Zone in the Visitor Centre.

Changes will be made to the Visitor Centre at the castle to make it quieter.  Hand dryers will be turned off and there will be no background music.
