A mission to nurture the potential Gainsboroughs of the future is in full swing at his birthplace.
Youngsters put their creative talents to the test yesterday at an Easter Bonnets & April Fools Hats workshop held at Gainsborough’s House in Sudbury.
It was the first of two school holiday sessions being organised by museum staff.
Rosemary Woodward from Gainsborough’s House said: “The idea is to get youngsters interested in art at an early age.
“The hat workshop offered a really fun way to get them involved.”
On April 14 and 15, youngsters are invited to help create a giant 3D futuristic map of Sudbury inspired by the 1714 Brewer’s map currently on display at the museum.
