Hedges & Hurdles Country Skills & Crafts have been invited to run regular workshops and training courses at the new Woodland Art’s and Well Being Space on the Birtley Estate in Bramley, Guildford.
The aim for Ruth is to develop her existing space at Birtley house into an outdoor rustic community space. This will be a core hub for artists and craft makers alike but also for yoga teachers and wellness practitioners to use as a teaching space alongside her already established carving studio.
It is so important to teach heritage crafts, to pass on our knowledge and keep these skills alive. We use traditional materials, natural resources including Hazel and Willow to create our crafts. The majority of what we (Paul and Lorraine) use we coppice ourselves, with the help on occasions from volunteers! We can honestly say that our activities are environmentally beneficial and really help increase the biodiversity in the woodland environments where we work.
There is a clear synergy between our businesses and vision for the future and we look forward to helping Ruth realise her dream of creating a ‘nurturing woodland space’ for all.
We kick off our collaboration with a selection of Willow Craft Workshops for September:
We will continue to add further dates for workshops in September and beyond and you can expect to see a varied selection of Wood Crafts for you to choose from. If you have any special requests for workshops or training courses then please make contact.
We’re calling all goblins, ghosts and creatures of the night! Dress up if you like and give us a fright!
Just creep, float, crawl or hop and join us for a Halloween Workshop!
Moving into October we will be running Halloween Workshops, these are either 90 minutes or half day workshops, take your pick. We have a selection of crafts for you to choose including Witches Broom Sticks, Pumpkin Carving and our special Halloween Spider Web Dream Catchers!
