Rainy day/ Best of Exmoor courses
a winning combination of getting out into the countryside to gather equipment, and then coming back to our cosy barn to use your booty to create! It could be pressing flowers or seaweed, plaster casting foliage, picking blackberries or blueberries to make jam or sloes for sloe gin.
If some of your party would rather just sit by the woodburner and read for the afternoon, then that’s fine by us.
Breadmaking, Bake an artisan loaf of sourdough or focaccia and take home a skill that has been practiced in farmhouses for hundreds of years, could be the start of a new career!
Jams and jellies, Collect rosehips, blueberries or blackberries in season or raid my freezer for fruit and make a delicious jar of jam or jelly to take home as a souvenir.
Watercolour painting…collect objects from nature for a still life or photograph a tree or a view and come back to the woodburner to paint a unique momento of your holiday. We also have chickens, sheep and an Exmoor pony to pose for you. All equipment supplied.
Fused Glass … make coasters or tree decorations in a one day course, we will fire it overnight for you to collect and take home the next day.
