Welcome Hot Drinks
1.5 hour Woodland Inks workshop with Surrey Art School
Seasonal Lunch cooked over fire
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 art class, we’ll sit down at our woodland dining able for lunch, inspired by seasonal, local ingredients and cooked over our open fires.
TBT (To be tasty)
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.
This event will take place in our cosy barn and woodland glen, on the Priory Farm Estate.
Our woodland glen is a 5-10 minute walk from our barn / parking area, with a section uphill. Please ensure to wear suitable clothing and footwear.
