The Manor House is an iconic Grade 1 listed building siting on top of an ancient monument, within the footprint of the Roman Fort. Olicana is one of the roman names for Ilkley.

The workshop will be held in the Western Gallery on the first floor. Please note that there is no lift.

All materials will be supplied and are included in the cost. Tea/Coffee and cold drinks will be available, just bring a packed lunch. This workshop is not suitable for children or babies to accompany participants.
