Two local charities offer creative and wellbeing courses at Petworth Park

Aspire Sussex and the National Trust’s Petworth House and Park, have joined forces to offer a unique range of creative skills and wellbeing courses all delivered within the stunning beauty of the grounds of Petworth Park.


The ‘Learning in the Landscape’ programme offers courses across creative arts including photography, watercolour, wash and ink and pencil drawing, along with wellbeing courses including yoga and mindfulness. All of the courses will be delivered in the open air and natural surroundings of Petworth Park, providing an opportunity to see the incredible ‘Capability’ Brown landscape through the vision of the talented tutors of Aspire Sussex, West Sussex’s leading Adult Education provider.

Aspire Sussex CEO, Robyn Kohler said, ’We are thrilled to be able to provide such an amazing outdoor classroom for learners to develop their creative skills or to invigorate their minds and bodies. The courses allow learners to progress at their own pace, learning new skills and developing confidence within the most inspiring of locations.’

Adam Hastie, National Trust General Manager, added, ‘We are delighted that Aspire Sussex has chosen to hold their creative and wellbeing courses in Petworth Park. Every year visitors come to the park to enjoy the outdoors and experience the majesty of the landscape. We’re excited to see how participants on the Aspire Sussex courses interpret this environment, be that through their camera or on canvas, and bring their own vision of Petworth to life.’

The ‘Learning in the Landscape’ programme will offer courses from June through to September and are suitable for learners of all abilities. More details on each of the courses and booking is available at www.aspiresussex.org.uk/petworth.
