In celebration of Capability Brown's birthday month, this week we held a Family Fun Day here at Scampston.
Throughout the day we were joined by 60 children who took part in the collaging & crafts, family walks, and the bug hunting in the ponds!
These incredible collages were created to capture the essence of Brown's landscapes, and the habitats they create - for butterflies, bees and all sorts of other creatures. All the different materials used made an array of different textures and bright colours.
It was a busy day here, but were so pleased to sit back and admire the gorgeous creations which will now take pride of place on display in the Heritage & Learning Centre in Scampston Conservatory
This event took place as part of a year of celebrations for Capability Brown. Scampston is a hub site for the Capability Brown Festival. 2016 marks the 300th anniversary of the birth of Lancelot 'Capability' Brown, a designer who changed the national landscape. As the first ever celebration of Brown's extensive works, the Capability Brown festiavl 2016 brings together a huge range of events, openings and exhibitions.
