Obelisk Workshop

Join us for an outdoor craft workshop and make a Hazel or Willow Obelisk (plant support) you can be proud of!

We can also arrange private group bookings (minimum 4 people) on a date and location to suit.

The Workshop

You will have the choice of a 1 hr workshop so that you can make a Mini Obelisk suitable for a pot (we do this on a table top) or a 2.5 hr workshop to make both a mini Obelisk and a larger Obelisk (up to 7ft in height).

Mini Willow Obelisk


The workshop is suitable for adults and teenagers. You will be able to work independently or in pairs. You can also make your Obelisk on a table top if you have problems with your back or bending your knees.


We offer this course at more than one location:

> Birtley Woodland Art’s Space, Bramley, Guildford

> Sussex Prairies, nr Henfield

> Priory Farm Estate, South Nutfield

What should I wear?

We recommend you wear comfortable, outdoor clothing and footwear. You may also wish to bring a pair of gloves to protect your hands. You may also wish to bring something to kneel on and your own secateurs if you have them. However, don’t worry we will have some spare gloves and secateurs for you to use on the day if you don’t have your own.


We run both a morning and afternoon workshop:

Morning workshop: 9.30 a.m. to 12.00 p.m. (2.5 hr workshop)

Afternoon Workshop: 1.30 p.m. to 4.00 p.m. (2.5 hr workshop)

Our one-hour workshops will start at the same time as the above.

We will start off with a brief introduction and an overview of what to expect from the workshop.

See our Wood Craft Workshop if you would like to attend a full or half day workshop to include additional crafts.


Adults/Teenager: £40.00 per person (small and large Obelisk – 2.5 hr workshop)
