summer Wood craft retreats




Ruth and Lorraine are excited to welcome you to join us for a woodland retreat this Summer to soak up the peaceful atmosphere under the canopy of the trees and spend time tapping into your inner creativity, learning new skills and enjoying spending time with others.


We are delighted to invite you to join us for a full day or half-day, the choice is yours!

We include a selection of seasonal activities for you to choose from on the day suitable for families, adults, teenagers and supervised children.

For your main project, we offer you the opportunity to try your hand at a choice of Willow Art & Craft, Wood Carving or Pyrography.

The choice of Willow Art to choose from can include a Bird Feeder; Dream Catcher; Obelisk; Dragonfly or a Tension Tray. Activities will vary on different dates but you will have plenty of choices available. If you are with us for the whole day you can make several small pieces or one or two larger art pieces.

We e will also have a selection of other workstations offering a selection of activities for you to choose!

Examples of additional activities:

> Charcoal drawing

> God's Eyes

> Painting

> Clay

> Leaf printing

> Natural Mandalas

> Decoupage on 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!
