WARM up this winter with craft, cookery and classroom sessions at Petworth House.

Some 14 different sessions are on offer throughout November and early December, each including morning coffee and a two-course lunch.

A variety of well-known artisans, bakers and academics will lead small group sessions on their specialist subject areas. Guests select the ‘Winter Warmer’ which appeals to them most, book in and turn up on the day, ready to learn new skills.

Events manager Ian Pearce said: “The beauty of our Winter Warmer season is that there is something for everyone.

“Be it whipping up a hassle-free Christmas lunch, to painstakingly perfecting a festive wreath for your front door, we have worked hard to arrange a diary of events that will hopefully pique everyone’s interest. All creative materials or cookery ingredients are provided, as is morning coffee, where everyone in the group can meet and mingle before getting stuck into the task in hand.”

In other workshops, Aimee-Louise Richards will be running her ‘Papercut Picture’ workshop, while food historian Mandy Staniford will be looking back in history during her ‘Sweeter Than Candy’ session.

Places are limited and booking up fast.
