Participants at the April Easter workshops had a great time learning about secret messages and stained glass design as part of the Mystery Messages and Stained Glass Inspirations sessions, delivered by the programme tea,.

As part of Mystery Messages, children enjoyed an explorative trail around the Hall to decipher a mystery message and learning about how, in the past, messages were sometimes written in code to prevent them from being read. After the trail, the children settled down to make quill pens and create their very own secret messages!

In the second of the workshops, children learnt about stained glass window design, taking inspiration from the magnificent stained glass in Forty Hall on the first floor of the building (if you have not seen it before then head up the grand staircase because you are in for a treat)! With creative juices in full flow, the children sat down after their look at the window to create their very own stained glass window designs using acetate and pen.

A fun-filled Easter treat for the kids we're sure you'll agree!

Take a look at the photographs for Mystery Messages here and Stained Glass Inspirations here.

Don't forget, that Forty Hall offers an exciting programme of children's workshops and activities, all inspired by the Hall and its history, during the school holidays. So, if you are looking for something fun for the children to do - all the while being educational and engaging, then be sure to keep your eyes peeled on the What's On section of the website.
