'The chair making course was a complete detox from a life over-burdened with electronics and mechanical tricks that ‘save’ us the bother, and true joy of hand crafting something as simple as a chair. There are easier and cheaper ways of adding a chair to the household inventory but most definitely none so satisfying'.
We offer an array of traditional and contemporary craft courses, instructed by practicing artists and crafts people. Courses are tailored for beginners as well as those with experience. Ranging from single day to week-long courses, you will learn your new skill within our charming woodland workshop, or at the jewellers bench. There are options for one to one tuition, small groups, or larger groups of up to eight people.
Our stunning indoor and outdoor work spaces are available to hire for other artists to run their own short courses or exhibitions.
If you are staying for more than one day, we offer simple camping in our wildflower meadow... but watch this space as (subject to relevant permissions) we aim to develop a range of quirky accommodation to round off your woodland experience.
Ample tea, coffee, cake and a simple home cooked lunch are all included within your course fee.
For those of you staying overnight, we have a spacious kitchen and living area as well as an outdoor pizza oven for breakfast and evening meals. We recommend campers take turns to cook in pairs with a kitty of approximately £7.50 each per day for ingredients... we can shop for you!
Located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Wernog Wood is a hidden gem, right in the heart of the Clwydian Range, north east Wales. Our beautiful oak and ash woods are teaming with birds and wildlife, bluebells and wild garlic and an invigorating stream.
