The Walled Garden

Pegasus Art Painting Workshops in the Walled Garden

Pegasus Art is delighted to offer new workshops for adults in Stroud’s ‘Secret Garden’, the enchanting, newly opened Walled Garden at the Museum. There are plenty of subjects to draw upon – vivid flowers and plants in the garden borders designed by artist Cleo Mussi, architectural details such as the historic 18th century wrought iron gate, and the majestic trees of the surrounding parkland. The new glass-fronted Learning Pavilion will be our base, and a useful workspace in the event of wet weather. Tea and coffee will be available throughout the day and a delicious light lunch will be served at midday.
