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!
The real story behind the name “Halloween” started with the Christians. They called All Saints Day All Hallows or All Hallowmas, in Old English. The Celtics celebrated Samhain on October 31st, one day before All Saints Day, so they named the day All Hallows Eve. Further down the road, they changed it to Halloween. Ref: tlcnews
Hi everyone, I would just like to say thank you all for supporting our young business, it can be tough as a new start up and we really are grateful for the help you provide through your word of mouth recommendations and sharing of our posts on social media.
It has been an exciting year bringing my natural country crafts and skills workshops to picturesque locations acrosss Surrey and Sussex. As we head into Winter our workshop and training course focus changes to seasonal events such as Halloween and Christmas and also provides time for making commissioned products and planning all the events we have in mind for 2020!
A key focus for us during the Coppicing season (October through to March) is our two day Hedgelaying, Coppicing and Wattle Hurdle Making Courses available for those who are keen to challenge themselves or someone else to learn new (old) skills. Passing on our skills to others is so important to both Paul and I and we encourage you to come along and try these heritage skills for yourself. We undertake these courses at New Pond Farm, Reigate so if you are out walking over the weekend then do look out for Paul and his trainees. The dates and more information about these courses can be found in the links below:
We welcome the opportunity to create group events bespoke to your requirements, we have several locations for you to choose (more to announce in 2020) or depending on the activity we can come to you! We run experiences for private parties (adults or children), scouting and guiding, WI groups, Horticultural Societies, Corporate Team Building events and lots of themed workshops such as our “Hen In the Woods” events for Hen parties or just a group of friends wanting to have fun!
Thank you to all from Lorraine & Paul
