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.
