The Clearing is a vision of the future in the grounds of Compton Verney Art Gallery and Park

Making Mead

Saturday 12 August

No matter how bad the future gets, you’ll probably still want to have a tipple from time to time: the birth of your first child, perhaps, or the funeral of a faithful hound.

Step forward: mead. Mead is an ancient way of making booze, from fermented honey and water. It’s also delicious.

This workshop will be led by artist Dale Hipkiss. We’ll be making mead with both shop-bought and wild yeast, honey from Compton Verney’s own beehives, and water from the Compton Verney spring.

DATE: Saturday 12th August 2017.
TIME: 11am - 4pm.
BRING: Stout footwear, some food to share.
