Be our guest as we capture the spirit of the woods through art and food, for a day beneath the trees in our woodland glen. We’ll be taking time to drink in our surroundings with a seasonal inspired selection of art workshops led by Surrey Art School, combined with delicious food inspired by nature’s larder.
We’ll meet in our cosy barn and begin the afternoon with a Foraging Walk up to our woodland glen, waking up our senses and giving you tips on how to identify seasonal edibles. Together, we’ll gather a selection of wild ingredients as we settle into our natural surroundings.
After a restorative cuppa in our woodland kitchen (equipped with a large shelter in case of any uncooperative weather!), we will then turn our attention to our first art workshop of the day, a Mindful Photography session guided by Ellie, founder of Surrey Art School. Using a toolkit of mindful techniques, you’ll learn how to use your device or camera to tune into your surroundings – becoming more observant of light, shadows, colour and texture. A passionate photographer who uses her camera as a tool for meditation as much as for recording, Ellie will share her top tips and tricks for creating powerful compositions and a calm mind. You’ll learn how to develop an ‘attentional aperture’, using your eyes as the lens and focus, your mind as the processor and your camera as the anchor to the present moment.
