Beginner’s Mindful Photography & Sun-Printing

Beginner’s Mindful Photography & Sun-Printing

and Woodland Lunch


with The Salt Box and Surrey Art School

Foraging Walk in Surrey

Be our guest at our Summer collaboration with Surrey Art School!


We’re combining art and food for a morning beneath the trees in our woodland glen on the beautiful Priory Farm Estate, followed by a seasonal feast inspired by nature’s larder.


We’re very excited to welcome Ellie Green, founder of Surrey Art School to the woods, bringing a gentle dose of mindful creativity to the Salt Box this Summer.


Photography can help anchor us to the present moment, encouraging us to notice subtle changes in light, texture and colour in our surroundings. We’ll take a lovely mindful photography walk led by Ellie where she will explain how to use your ‘attentional aperture’ to tune into the present moment and demonstrate the meditative qualities of photography.


This will followed by a sun-printing (cyanotype) taster session where you’ll learn how to create camera-less photographs harnessing only the power of the sun.


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. The photography workshop requires nothing other than a smartphone camera – no fancy photography equipment needed!


Following the workshop, we’ll sit down at our signature shared dining tables for lunch. Inspired by local and seasonal produce, our menus showcase the very best of our doorstep produce.
