10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Birtley Woodland Art Space Bramley, Guildford Surrey GU5 0LB

Join us for a fun filled Creative Christmas themed Woodland Workshop!

Our woodland art space is nestled within the woodland beyond the lake on the Birtley Estate in Bramley, a beautiful Surrey Hills location, so
picturesque with its lakes and gardens and woodland walks and not surprisingly it is classified as an “AONB” an area of outstanding
natural beauty!

Enjoy a hot chocolate sitting around our campfire and feel free to explore the woodlands and lakes during our lunch break!


The day will comprise working with Willow and Wood in different ways including Wood Carving, Pyrography and Willow Weaving.

We will also be using hand tools including saws and drills to make a selection of wood crafts including Wooden Christmas Trees.

We will have a variety of different designs that you can choose from or you can create your own!

For an example you can carve, burn and decorate angels, Christmas Trees, Stars, Logs and natural hanging decorations. You will be provided with pre-cut shapes and will be taught how to use a Pyrography machine and woodcarving techniques using hand gouges, mallets and pain effects. You may have an opportunity to create your own designs and cut them out with a jigsaw too.

We will also be showing you how to make Christmas decorations from Willow including Angels, Hearts, Christmas Trees and Stars using a selection of Willow varieties and colours.

In a half-day workshop you will complete a Wood Art or Willow Art project piece or a couple of smaller projects, one of each medium. In a full-day workshop you can create a project in the morning and a second in the afternoon or again, if you prefer you can make smaller projects choosing a selection of wood and willow art. We are certain you will be pleased with the outcome of your projects and will always have something else for you do create if you find yourself finishing early!
