Printing the Past

Be inspired by the beautiful designs and architecture in the Museum and create your own nature-inspired art prints!

Pupils will discover the beautiful 19th-century design and architectural features within the Rothschild Rooms at Gunnersbury. They will also discover objects from Gunnersbury’s Local Industry collections, including a printing block from the 19th-century Sanderson wallcovering factory and printed textiles from celebrated 20th-century designer, Joyce Clissold.

KS2 children will make individual sketchbooks, practice their observation and sketching skills using natural materials from the park, and create their own designs and printing tiles which will then be used to print onto textile tote bags that they can take home.
