Wild Woodland Workshops

Welcome to my world…

Feel free to have a look around

 

 

Exciting developments afoot!!

I am relocating to my wonderful Sissinghurst garden setup which includes our hand-built, bespoke pallet workshop, complete with log burning stove, metal and wood working benches, and a wide range or tools, equipment and machinery!! And my second more ‘tidy’ studio will host my ‘bijou’ gift shop stocking my hand crafted silver jewellery, copper finery and other unique and interesting trinkets to browse & purchase…alongside that my silver smithing bench and textile areas will facilitate small group workshops in jewellery making, felting, paper making to name just a few!

As a designer / maker and general creator of beautiful things, I love working with all manner of materials and methods, particularly traditional mashed with modern…I have had formal training in many areas but am also largely self-taught… my passion for learning and for creativity is what i strive to share in my workshops and in the products i make, as well as respect for the planet and living sustainably, so a lot of what I do involves upcycling and use of sustainable materials…

 

My philosophy for wellness is based on giving yourself time…time for rest, relaxation and reflection…it has been shown that time spent in nature and time engaging in creative pursuits are the 2 best ways to refresh and reset yourself…so imagine if you combine them together! Deeply satisfying to your soul… 

your well being is your priority…my aim is to facilitate just a little bit of that…

Creative woodland workshops and events with a difference…

Picture the scene….

Roaring log fire, the sights, sounds and smells of the forest, working with your hands, learning new skills, using different materials & tools, being amongst like-minded folk, peace, quiet, calm, experimenting and discovering, creating something truly unique and beautiful…relaxing and unwinding….ahhhh… not to mention fresh coffee and tea, & toasted marshmallow s’mores…yum!!

What's it all about?

There are so many  benefits to taking part in a Wild Woodland Workshop! Being out in Nature whilst immersing yourself in creative activities and learning new skills, is a unique and hugely satisfying way to relax and de-stress. Creativity or Nature individually, have huge benefits to physiology, your immune system, mental health, neurogenesis and cognitive function, so imagine how much combining them multiplies these benefits! Not to mention being active whilst learning! Learning new skills is a well-known way to keep the brain active and encourage neuroplasticity and neurogenesis – both ways of avoiding and / or delaying degenerative brain disease….there is more to these workshops than just fun!!

Wild Woodland Workshops has so much to offer and is perfect for so many occasions and events….

“Great workshop! So relaxing and fun... I learnt so much and really enjoyed sharing ideas with the others - such a great day!!”
