Tea, Cake and Make: Look Up in Wonder

Join our relaxed, hands-on workshop led by artist Gemma Coyle on 13th July and create your own versions of the decorative plaster mouldings in the Palace of Holyroodhouse.

Tea, Cake and Make: Look Up in Wonder

About Tea, Cake and Make: Look Up in Wonder

The Palace of Holyroodhouse has some of the finest plaster ceilings in the country.

In an afternoon workshop led by artist Gemma Coyle, discover the history of the palace's ceilings and what they represent, and then get 'hands on' as you use a variety of materials to create your own versions of decorative plaster mouldings which you can take home.

With tea and cake on hand, it's a workshop to inspire and stimulate.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Tea, Cake and Make: Look Up in Wonder are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
