Art and Wine
Thursday 23rd April 2020 7pm
Join us for a unique evening of wine and art.. Take a tour of the Daws Hill Vineyard with your host Holly before joining professional artist and award winning tutor Jay Nolan–Latchford for a painting workshop. We’ll be using watercolours and gouache for our beautiful Red Kite painting. These striking birds make a beautiful subject and with demonstrations and 1:1 guidance everyone will leave with a finished painting mounted and ready to frame. All materials and refreshments provided. Suitable for beginners upwards.
Backwood experiences – Obelisk Building and Lunch
Sunday 12th July 2020 1pm
Join Billy Stott from BackWoods Experiences for a workshop learning how to make your own natural and sustainable willow obelisk plant support, which you will get to take home! This support is great for climbing plants, such as sweet peas and clematis and it will also be made using some vines from the Daws Hill grapes!
You will learn about the types of willow and how they grow, have a short demonstration on starting your obelisk, then get stuck in and start making your own.
The afternoon will start with a leisurely lunch in the vineyard. Locally sourced ploughmans lunch with of course a glass or two of Daws Hill bubbles.
Backwood experiences – Flower making
Sunday 9th August 2020 1pm
Join Billy Stott from BackWoods Experiences for a workshop learning how to make your own natural, sustainable and reusable flower crown using willow and vines from the Daws Hill grapes!
You will learn about the types of willow and how they grow, have a short demonstration on weaving your flower crown base, then get stuck in and start making your own. You will then get to decorate with flowers and foliage, many of which have been grown by Billy just a few miles away at his plant nursery in Stokenchurch. Your crown will be yours to take home and you can re-decorate as many times as you’d like!
