Chessell is now open every day for the school summer holidays from 9.30am – 5.30pm. We have an exciting new theme for the holidays of Under the Sea, with all sorts of different sponges to help inspire you to create something special. How about combining a trip to one of our beautiful island beaches, followed by a visit to Chessell to capture the memories forever? We have sea horses, dolphins (recently spotted in the island waters!), whales, sharks, seaweed and boats, to name but a few of our sponge shapes – or are you brave enough to go freehand and create your own underwater scene? Our studio assistants are always on hand to help out with ideas and techniques. Whilst you are with us, don’t forget to visit our cafe for a taste of our delicious homemade sweet and savoury treats, and pop into the shop to browse our quirky and unique gifts and souvenirs. We very much look forward to welcoming you!
