Join Artist Ruth Wheeler for a relaxing creative workshop. Sitting outside and being inspired by the surrounding trees and landscape. Ruth will guide you in learning the skill of pyrography and In a one hour taster workshop you will be able to make one of the smaller items as shown in the images below, such as a coasters, discs and small signs.
Pyrography means writing with fire and is a wonderfully meditative practice where one needs to slow down and take time, creating drawing like strokes with fire.
Pyrography is really accessible for all ages and abilities. This workshop is designed to suit novices.
Willow Dream Catchers
Join Lorraine a Willow Weaving tutor to learn how to make your own Willow Dream Catcher.
You will first make a Willow wreath base and once complete learn how to weave a web using twine in a colour of your choice! We will have lots of different jewels and feathers for you to use to decorate your dream catcher!
In some Native American cultures, a dreamcatcher or dream catcher is a handmade willow hoop, on which is woven a net or web. It originates in Ojibwe culture as the "spider web charm". The dream catcher may also include sacred items such as certain feathers or beads. Traditionally they are often hung over cradles as protection.
All-natural materials are provided
The workshop is suitable for adults, teenagers and children (if supervised by an adult). You will be able to work independently if separate tickets are purchased or in pairs if the child is accompanying an adult.
What should I bring?
We recommend you bring a pair of sharp secateurs if you have them if you are making a Dream Catcher, however, we do have some you can borrow if not.
