STROUD'S Museum in the Park invites visitors of all ages to celebrate autumn during the half term holidays with a variety of creative drop in activities.

The museum is inviting people to hunt for autumn treasures in the beautiful grounds of Stratford Park and then add a colourful leaf, pine cone, seedpod or other find to its autumn nature table in the courtyard.

In the art gallery inside, visitors can be inspired by Dail Behennah's Nature Table, where intricately crafted made objects sit alongside beautiful pebbles, feathers and other natural found objects.

Starting today (Tuesday 27th October), artist Emily Joy will be leading a creative drop in workshop where drawing and looking games will be on offer, again inspired by the beauty of autumn leaves and the amazing shapes and patterns found in nature.

"Stratford Park is looking glorious at the moment," said Ann Taylor, the museum’s learning officer.

"Enjoy a walk in the park, hunting for fallen leaves and other treasures and then come along to the museum where you can take part in creative art activities or explore the building, with its many fascinating objects."

"You can also take a photo of a favourite autumn leaf or other amazing find and add it to the museum’s online nature table," said Jo Horwood, duty manager at the museum.

"The hashtag is #stroudnaturetable and people can tag their photographs on instagram, facebook or twitter to be added to a beautiful autumn nature gallery that we will be displaying on our website."
