About the Course

Looking for something a bit different to entertain your family this Easter?
Or perhaps you just love the idea of a few days of crafting and camping in the wild?! Maybe you are a Home Educator and looking for opportunities for your children?

Then this is for you!!

Come and spend 2 whole days being immersed in nature, creating, crafting, learning and unwinding in the tranquil setting of Kentish woodlands. A short drive from the stunning, historic village of Pluckley, you will find this beautiful private woodland, providing the perfect place to get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life.

What better way to spend real quality time with your children and facilitate their learning too. You can benefit from the therapeutic effects of nature, explore your creativity and meet like-minded folk.

The woodland has its own source of wild clay which we will harvest and process; you will be shown a number of techniques with which to create a variety of pottery pieces, leaving them to dry overnight. We will cook a communal meal over the open fire* and share our experiences of the day with lots of laughter! After a night under canvas* we will begin Day 2 with a cooked campfire breakfast, followed by Pewter casting, where you will learn how to use tools, equipment and various techniques to create pewter items.
After a campfire lunch* we will attempt to fire our wild clay items and then test and finish them before gathering all that we have made together and spending some time reflecting and sharing what we have learnt and enjoyed.

What an amazing experience to share with your children!! An opportunity that you don’t find everyday...a chance to create lasting memories!
