A day of monster making fun at Frogmore, 20 children and their adults created monster costumes from paper and card, Starting with their own imaginative drawings and some well known monsters for inspiration, some fantastic results were created as you can see.
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.
The Apsley Paper Trail charity supports its conservation and education programmes by offering unfurnished office and industrial space at all three of its sites.
All spaces are offered on a simple licence to operate with an easy-in, easy-out rolling one month agreement that is all-inclusive of rent, rates, gas, heating and electricity. The only items that licencees need to pay for directly in order to occupy these spaces are telephones and contents insurance.
