Mackintosh At The Willow currently remains open for creative learning opportunities and we are very fortunate the building has lots of space for everyone to move safely around in. However we understand the challenges 2020 presents to teachers and organisers faced with changing guidelines in the face of Covid19. We therefore have a few different opportunities to ensure your groups can still be inspired by Mackintosh and Miss Cranston, so decide which one best suits you and give our Creative Learning Manager a call 0141 3759574 or email: email@example.com.
All our workshops are currently free! We ask for a contribution to cover travel costs if you are booking an outreach visit. Discounted tea and shortbread available as we know from past experience kids love having their ‘afternoon tea!’
OPTION 1: PRIMARY SCHOOL OUTREACH
We’ll come to you! One person will visit your school and deliver a fun workshop investigating tea, Miss Cranston’s amazing Willow Tea Rooms and Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s design. The workshop includes opportunities for pupils to dress up as characters and be hot-seated by the rest of the class. This is a very popular workshop! If you have ideas for a different focus let us know and we can sort something out for you.
OPTION 2: HANDLING BOX
Coming soon! You can hire our handling box, which is a wonderful supplement to any Victorian topics.
OPTION 3: MACKINTOSH AT THE WILLOW VISIT
We have lots of space at Mackintosh At The Willow and are still able to give specialist tours, stencilling workshops, sketching tours and vocational sessions for older students studying hospitality or tourism etc (see below for more details.) We also have an exhibition over two floors full of activities and information about Miss Cranston, Mackintosh and the restoration of the building.
Group sizes: currently education groups are exempt from the two-households rule and can still visit attractions. However, we have Covid19 practices in place similar to other public buildings (masks, hand sanitiser, social distancing etc.) Feel free to request our amended risk assessment document before you visit.
COVID 19: COMMUNITY GROUPS
We are currently suspending our popular outreach talk due to restrictions on groups meeting together. However, as soon as this changes get in touch and book a visit.
OPTION 2: MACKINTOSH AT THE WILLOW VISIT
You can still come visit us as we are running tours and stencilling workshops but give us a call to discuss how we manage numbers in line with Covid19 guidelines. We also offer special discounted prices for community groups to eat here!
