DATES FOR NEW YEAR 2022
Clay Tiles & Kiln Gods - Wilderness Wood - 12/3/22
with Martin Brockman & Adele Scantlebury
***POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE***
Learn a bit about the local history of making things from clay in the Sussex Weald. Design your own tile decoration, drawing on the beautiful surroundings of Wilderness Wood and have a go at traditional tile-making.
Clay will be provided for making small beads, animals and pinch pots which can be fired during the day.
We will look at two different firing techniques - fast and super-fast!
Suitable for mixed age groups and individuals.
Wood Carving - Wilderness Wood - 30/4/22
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 logs, such as oak, sycamore or birch - which can be your starting point to create a unique carving.
A lovely decoration from the woods!
Suitable for adults and competent teenagers.
