Natural Art Workshop with Surrey Art School.

2-Course Seasonal Lunch with The Salt Box.

Join us beneath the trees for a nature-inspired art workshop in collaboration with Surrey Art School, followed by a seasonally inspired lunch cooked over our open fires.

We’re combining art and food for a morning beneath the trees with Surrey Art School founder, Ellie Green, followed by a seasonal feast. 

 

Our food and art collaborations guarantee a warm welcome, a gentle dose of mindful creativity and a feast cooked over our flickering flames, inspired by seasonal, local ingredients.

 

We’ll start with ‘mindful looking’ using our eyes to scan the bare branches of the trees, looking for texture, changes in colour, light and noticing where the shadows fall. We’ll then be reaching for our oak gall inks and with some tuition from Ellie, will learn how to use our brush effectively to record the shapes and forms of the forest.

We’ll spend the rest of the morning creating dreamy winter studies of the woodland – playing with washes and working with a range of different brushes and brush strokes to capture our surroundings.

 

Following the workshop, we’ll sit down around our shared dining tables for a two-course lunch.

 

Our woodland glen is based on a beautiful private estate in South Nutfield, just outside of Redhill, a 30 minute direct train from London. We are fully covered with our woodland shelter in the event of wet weather, but please do ensure to dress appropriately.

 

This workshop is suitable for beginners and Ellie’s gentle and mindful approach to teaching will encourage your confidence levels to bloom and your technical skill to blossom.

DIETARY REQUIREMENTS

Our menus are best suited for flexible, adventurous eaters with a strong focus on seasonally and locally inspired ingredients, including wild and foraged foods sourced from nature’s larder.

 

Due to the nature of our events and in order to uphold high-quality standards we are only able to accommodate limited dietary requests at our dining events and cookery courses. Our dining events are intimate affairs with small groups, centred around a set menu lovingly prepared in our remote woodland kitchen by our small kitchen team, therefore preparing a separate menu to cater for dietary needs is not always possible. 

 

Dietary needs must always have been communicated and approved prior to booking your seat at our table, and must be advised to our team no later than 7 days prior to the event so that our chef’s can make the necessary arrangements.

please note

Our dining spot is a 7-10 minute walk from our Parking area, with a section uphill. Toilet facilities are available near the Parking area by our barn. 

 

Instructions on how to find us and where to park, will be sent to you prior to the event via email.
