Woodchester Wednesday

Event starts: 14 August 2013

14 August 2013 - Carvings Day

The Mansion is famous for its carvings of plants and animals and today is the day to create one of your own. Don't worry, we'll be providing some easily carved material, not hard stone! We'll also send you off to find as many of the weird and wonderful carvings around the Mansion as you can. This day might inspire you to become a mason when you grow up!
