This Snowdrops Workshop is a fringe event of the Shepton Mallet Snowdrop Festival and runs as two sessions: noon till 3pm You will be shown how to make stained glass-effect snowdrops from plastics or be working on a larger piece that will be displayed in the Anglo Trading windows as part of a bigger installation.

Window Wanderland encourages communities to decorate their windows – either with lit up paper or installations and share a special message with their community. It was an initiative started in Bristol and is now international. See https://www.windowwanderland.com/ for more info.
Window Wanderland is a great way of bringing the community together and encouraging local people to explore Shepton Mallet and get to know their neighbourhood more. Its a great opportunity to showcase Shepton’s iconic buildings, high street, community organisations and people
Lots of Shepton’s iconic buildings are taking part: The Art Bank, The Anglo, Haskins, The Library, local schools and its a fun way to come together – open to all.
The final event takes place from the 5th – 8th March 2020 and is supported by Somerset County Council Improving Lives and Wells Festival of Literature and will run concurrently with All the World’s Our Playground performance at St Paul’s School.
Supported by The Art Bank, Make the Sunshine and the Rubbish Art Project. Workshops generously supported by funding from SSL (Somerset Skills and Learning).
