We’re combining natural crafts and seasonal food for a day beneath the trees at our Woodland Glen on the Priory Farm estate, followed by a feast cooked over fire and inspired by seasonal, local ingredients.
We’ll be welcoming Lorraine, co-founder of Hedges and Hurdles to the woods! Join Lorraine and learn a heritage skill in our outdoor workshop, where you will learn a traditional technique of weaving Willow to make your very own Obelisk to support your climbers such as Sweet Peas or Clematis!
Your finished Obelisk can be between 3ft and 7ft in height, we recommend you check how much available space you have in or on your car before deciding! Handled with care your Obelisk should last you for several years.
Following the obelisk workshop, we’ll sit down at our shared dining table beneath the trees for a 2-course lunch, cooked over an open fire.
