60th Celebration

Bespoke Group Events

Tailor-made for you...

If you’re looking to create an event that will be memorable, meaningful and a little bit different to anything you’ve done before…well, look no further!! My workshops are something really unique and can be tailored to suit your needs. 

Picture this…a group of you gathered together around a campfire in the woods, kettle on and marshmallow toasting a plenty…but add to that the opportunity to learn new skills and to make something completely individual to take home with you…a recipe for relaxation and satisfaction, spending time with people who are important to you, reconnecting, laughing and being creative together…what more do you need…? 

Be it for a Corporate team building / Staff wellness, Special celebration, Stag or Hen do, Reunion, or just a long overdue get together with friends or family… these creative, immersive events will enhance and enrich your connection…you can come to me or I can come to you…get in touch to discuss ideas and possibilities.

Location

Quarry Farm in Bodiam, East Sussex, is a perfect place for a group getaway and has a range of options for overnight accommodation should you wish to make it into a full on mini-break! I am on site there now in ‘The Outpost’ where you can pop in and see me at work, discuss your requirements, and buy some of my hand crafted products – then pop down to The Hub cafe for a lovely lunch or tasty treat! We work in close collaboration with you to create the perfect event for your group! Alternatively, if you have a site of your own or one that you’d prefer, I am able to come to you too!

My story

I am a naturally curious person and I love learning and sharing knowledge and discoveries…so I suppose it’s to be expected that I trained to become a teacher – as a natural creative and problem solver it’s also fairly obvious why I chose Design Technology as my subject…I love it!! Being in the teaching profession for 20years as Head of department for 10 of those, I had the opportunity to teach all age groups and various subjects in state, private and special education settings as well as, more recently, freelance. 

My personal love of nature and being outdoors led me to investigate bushcraft and primitive skills which infused my teaching via projects and school trips and eventually, I trained as a Level 3 Forest School Leader 8 years ago. This new understanding and knowledge I had, led me to develop a whole school program called ‘Adventure School’, based on Forest School, Bushcraft, and wild camping, it was a roaring success! However, an unexpected realisation occurred to me, that not only are our children seriously lacking in time outside – especially amongst trees – but us adults are too! We are also often lacking in opportunities to just ‘play’, to be creative and to STOP being so ‘grown up’ (uptight) and allow ourselves to flow and breathe! This was confirmed by the number of parents and fellow teachers over the years, who expressed a desire to do what their children were doing, a longing for a simpler time, an innocence, a freedom, a letting go….

So my mission is to do something to redress this imbalance, to offer opportunities for all ages to get outside and get their hands dirty – like we did when we were kids!! Opportunities to put aside the pressure and the expectations upon on us and just be…

Spending time in nature and spending time immersed in creative activities are 2 very powerful ways to ‘detox’ from our stressful modern lives – a way to press the ‘release valve’ and recalibrate. My workshops are designed with this in mind but also with a view to encouraging Life-long-learning – a proven way to keep our brains fit and even encourage neurogenesis (the creation of new brain cells). 

  Having studied Shinrin Yoku – aka Forest bathing – and being someone who values the health benefits provided to us in creation…my intention is to try to encourage and imbue some of these precious things into our lives…simply because we need them! So join me for an experience that will leave you feeling refreshed and satisfied…better still, commission your own bespoke event with a group of friends or family and create lasting memories together.

Make an enquiry

Due to Covid-19 workshops are unable to take place at the moment but in the near future I fully expect to be full steam ahead – especially now I am collaborating with The Hub @ Quarry Farm in Bodiam. So now is a great time to get your booking secured as places and dates will fill up fast once the restrictions are lifted. Should there be further lockdowns, rest assured your booking can easily be rearranged.

Join me on social media for up to date information and inspiration or to discuss ideas and possibilities, feel free to email or give me a call… 

If this has intrigued you or awakened your imagination and you’d like to have a chat about ideas for an event, I would love to hear from you! No obligation of course.
