Rush Stars & Hearts
Make folk art inspired stars, hearts and snowflakes from English rush. It’s a traditional, native plant that’s lovely to work with. You can make small decorations for your tree or bough, or larger versions to hang on your door or wall.

Twig Wreath
Make a unique wreath using twigs foraged from the woods. No wire, pins or nails will be used, only the beautiful simplicity of the natural materials with their subtle colours and textures. Perfect to hang on your front door, as a wall decoration, or a centrepiece for your table.

Venue: 70 acre ancient woodland on a family-run working  farm: peaceful and beautiful Dernwood Farm, East Sussex. An hour’s drive from London; 20 mins by taxi from the nearest train station.

We just wanted to thank you immensely for a wonderful day in the woods. Your course was so thoughtfully planned and paced, we felt immersed and brilliantly looked after. Time slowed and you helped us feel confident working with a new material.  Neil & Ruth, Sussex
