Family Natural Inks Workshop & Woodland Supper

Join us in the woods for an exciting collaboration with Surrey Art School!


We’re combining art and food for a family afternoon beneath the trees at the beautiful Priory Farm, followed by a seasonal feast inspired by seasonal, local ingredients. Before we start the workshop, we’ll learn how to light a fire in the great outdoors, lighting the fire upon which we’ll cook our supper on!


We’re very excited to welcome Ellie Green, founder of Surrey Art School to the woods! Join Ellie for a lovely family friendly workshop suitable for children and adults alike. We’ll start by creating our own quills from feathers and learn how to make our own inks using berries and other natural ingredients. We’ll then use our new-found drawing and painting tools to create a lovely landscape painting using the beautiful woodland as inspiration. Totally natural from start to finish and so much fun!


Following the art workshop, we’ll sit down at our shared dining table beneath the trees for a delicious 2-course supper.
