Our education team offer a range of exciting workshops for schools covering Key Stages 1. 2. 3 and 4, outreach activities and school assemblies. A standard 2 and a half hour visit includes a mill tour, papermaking and a third activity selected from a list: weaving, braille, history, science, recycling, letterpress and art. An upstream task suits KS2/3. Specialist art, bookbinding and enterprise activities are offered to KS3/4. Students enjoy the opportunity to a visit a working industrial setting.
Possibly our biggest selection of courses, events and activities yet! The Winter 2013/2014 brochure caters for all ages and interests. Adults can try their hand at professional hand papermaking, letterpress printing, computer skills, book crafts, drawing and more, whilst children can let loose creative energy in David Lane’s ‘Inventions’ day or in the design-your-own-monster Family Fun day ‘Monsters’.

Although we tend not to give much thought to the paper that we use every day, there is a wealth of fascination behind its history, its science, its industry and its usage. At Frogmore Mill our aim is to tell this story in an entertaining way so that our visitors can see for themselves the contribution that paper has made to the world as we know it today.
