Put your own artistic skills to the test or let the professionals do it for you. Think postcard painting, pottery or perfumery. Attend a private harpsichord concert in George Frederick Handel’s House, or visit a restoration studio to see how the experts save iconic works of art. Harness the actor in you and go behind-the-scenes of London’s most iconic theatres, try on the jewels used in Downton Abbey or take a Shakespeare workshop with Shakespearean actors. Indulge your taste buds with gin and whisky sampling or cook Italian food while discussing Italian painting. Always with art as the thematic backbone, be guided by someone who really knows their stuff.
