What you'll do

We will start off meeting at the Watergate Street Gallery which is located in the heart of Chester on historic Watergate Street. I will take you on a short tour (about 30 minutes) within the Roman Walls of Chester’s City centre. Here I will highlight some key details about Chester's history as well as pointing out key historical buildings and architecture.
Our tour will conclude back at the gallery where we will have our own space in the cavern of the gallery to create our own piece of Chester art. There is no experience needed just a friendly and relaxed activity to create a unique souvenir which you will be able to take home with you as a momento of your trip to Chester. I will guide you with step by step instructions on how this can be created.
Whilst you are working you will be welcome to enjoy a hot or cold drink.
To finish the experience, you are welcome to take look at some of the beautiful artwork at the Watergate Street Gallery. There is a huge range of stunning artwork by a variety of artists to observe and buy if you wish.

Hi, I’m Lynne I have lived in Chester for over 20 years and I am proud to show off this stunning city.
My varied experience of teaching and presenting in combination with a passion for art and architecture makes this experience both informative, fun and friendly. I am not an artist myself and this workshop doesn't require you to have any artistic experience....come along, give it a go and enjoy! It’s something a bit different to a usual tour and you get to take your own unique souvenir of Chester home with you! Great for families, couples or groups of friends.
I have been an Airbnb host since 2014 and I have enjoyed hosting guests from a variety of a counties around the world. I only speak English but I am happy to translate my tour on paper if you let me know what language you speak when booking.

A nice short stroll around the town, gaining an overview of its history and layout which we then followed up on later in our own time. The art activity was relaxed and enjoyable, any ability would be able to take part and create something to take away. Lynne was friendly, accomadating and looked after us well.

We had a really nice time with Lynne. She is very friendly, and knows well the town and had some great stories to tell us. The drawing part was very nice and very calming. It is a very nice experience and would highly recommend it. It is nice to have a short explanation about the special architecture of Chester and then be able to experiment with some drawings. I truly enjoyed.
