Handle original Tudor artefacts that have been found on the site of Woking Palace, a royal hunting lodge owned by Henry VIII. Students will explore how the Tudors lived and the difference between the Tudor rich and poor and get to dress up as a Tudor nobleman – or a beggar! This workshop will help students consider how significant people in history effected their own local area. Back in the studio they will be able to make their own coat of arms badge.
