willow in the wood

Our woodland art space is nestled within the woodland beyond the lake on the Birtley Estate in Bramley, a beautiful Surrey Hills location, so picturesque with its lakes and gardens and woodland walks and not surprisingly it is classified as an "AONB" an area of outstanding natural beauty!

Join Lorraine for a half-day or full-day, outdoor craft workshop and learn to weave with Willow to create an Art piece, a Sculpture you can be proud of!
