Welcome to Blackbird Arts - workshops coming up:

Why not have a look at the Archive to see what we do.


Wood Carving - 26/10/19 - Wilderness Wood

with Martin Brockman

Martin will show you how to handle basic wood carving chisels and assess working in three dimensions.  There will be a selection of locally sourced timber, e.g. planked lime for relief carving and chestnut, sycamore or birch logs - which can be your starting point to create a unique carving of a bird.

A lovely decoration from the woods! 

Suitable for adults and competent teenagers.


Withy Deer Sculpture - 2/11/19 - Grist Wood
with Martin Brockman

Come and build a Withy Deer Sculpture in the beautiful surroundings of Grist Wood.  ​This is a working coppice woodland so we will have access to plenty of materials for building. The facilities are basic, there is a covered area to work under if needed and access to a compost toilet.
We will provide refreshments but please bring your own lunch. We will keep a campfire going so you can cook on it if you wish.

The cost of £95 is per sculpture so you can work as a mixed age group - up to 4 people. Children need to be a with supervising adult.
