This September 28th at 12pm-5pm, Frogmore Mill & The Paper Mill Apsley lock are joining forces for this years Apsley Autumn Craft Fair!
We’ll have craft stalls, a hog roast, face painting, duck races, boat rides to the mill, a chance to meet Santa (before he heads back to the North Pole in December) and a lot more!
£1 Tickets on the door!
PLEASE NOTE: Due to the cost of admission, prices will be different than usual on the 7th September: £2 for guided mill tours, £1 for have-a-go hand paper making and £3.50 for boat trips.
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.
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.
When: 18th and 19th October
Time: 10.00 to 3.00pm
Fee: £110 the weekend, £60 Saturday only

The first day will provide you with all you need to know, the second will enable additional hands on experience and opportunity to experiment.
