THERE will be more than a touch of William Morris in the children’s activities at the artist’s former Bexleyheath home over Easter.

Red House, in Red House Lane, now owned by the National Trust, will be hosting a free medieval card-making activity in the gardens of the house on Good Friday between 11am and 4.30pm.

Children will use stamps, stencils and colour-in designs to make their own illuminated manuscript.

Operations support officer Carla Bull said: “We didn’t think William Morris would approve of chocolate on Good Friday so I have designed a workshop using techniques and designs which he used, so children can take away something a bit different for Easter.”

During the rest of the Easter weekend there will be an Easter egg trail to follow around the garden, and the house will be open for unguided viewing between 11am and 4.30pm. The tearoom will also be open.
