Help us to create a huge, collaborative ‘Love Your Castle’ piece of art and learn basic spray techniques with graffiti artist Stephen Lamb. Stephen is a Jersey-based graffiti artist, who is part of the fantastic ‘Keep on Rockin’ crew. He has taught art and graffiti skills to individuals and groups of all ages, from five-year-olds to people in their 90s, both in Jersey and the UK, and in a variety of youth and school settings. Graffiti is an exciting and engaging art form and Stephen is keen to inspire visitors of all ages and artistic ability with his skills and knowledge.

Hamptonne / 14 to 18 August
Wild Play Days at Hamptonne are perfect for connecting with each other and nature through crafts, skill learning and free play. Each day will be led and supported by naturalist Stephen Le Quesne. Stephen is a Forest School and Bushcraft Leader with a passion for outdoor play. He provides the materials and guidance and the children and their adults create the activities and the play that follows. In previous years, we have whittled sticks, created dens, weaved wands and built bow ’n’ arrows. This year will be no different with plentiful resources and help available for you to fill your day and explore the natural world.

Get to know the exhibits within the Castle through observational drawing, and create your own Island Icon with Jools’ guidance using Mont Orgueil as inspiration.
