Children's Activity Event

Children's Activity Event


Our team of rangers are constantly hard at work caring for and maintaining our fabulous woodland at Penrhyn Castle and Glan Faenol.

But it's not all felling and fencing - they have incredible skills in traditional woodworking too. You can learn just a few of these skills and techniques to create your own rustic plaque of pegs to take home with you. Perfect for hanging the dog's lead, keys, bags or jewellery. You could even give it to someone special for Christmas!

Due to the use of some sharp tools this workshop is suitable for children ages 12 years and above only. Workshops at 11:30, 12:30 & 13:30.

Booking essential - Call 03442 491895 or book online.
