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.
We really hope to be able to release further tickets to all of our 2021 events, once we have a better indication of what ongoing COVID-19 restrictions may be in place for us all. For the meantime, if an event is showing as fully booked, please add your name to our Waiting List, and we’ll be sure to get in touch if any further tickets are made available.
Please note that due to the additional COVID-19 restrictions in place, tickets to our events and courses are currently only available for a minimum of 2 guests per booking. At our courses, each booking group (2+) will share a fire-pit and cookery station, to ensure social distancing between all guests. This will be reviewed as and when government guidelines are revised.
