About the event

As the sun lowers in the early evening sky, Maiden Castle’s ancient ramparts create an incredible landscape of silhouettes and shadows.

Led by professional artists Sarah Jane Ross and Ilse Black, this fun immersive creative workshop using charcoals and inks will spark your imagination, learn some new skills and connect to the landscape around you in a thought-provoking style.
