Charcoal Making and Art Workshop


Next date: tbc, 10.30pm – 4.00pm

Enjoy a day of relaxation and reinvigoration in nature. This wonderful workshop will be practical and creative combining bushcraft and art.

In the morning we’ll enjoy getting to know our surroundings and learning how to make artist grade charcoal, harvesting and processing your materials from the woods. In the afternoon we’ll be led in a masterclass by renowned street artist ATM in drawing with the charcoal that you’ve made.

The session will allow time for you to develop simple woodland living skills to help you feel more comfortable enjoying time in the woods, we hope to leave you feeling refreshed and inspired.

ATM (ATMstreetart) paints endangered species street art, using urban walls as a stark reminder of the species that once lived here, yet could again with habitat restoration.
The painted walls exist to call attention to the beauty and importance of living creatures that are so often overlooked and whose needs so often ignored. 
He aims to inspire a transformation of our towns, cities and countryside by reNaturing and reWilding, for the benefit of us all.
By bringing colour and beauty to neglected areas the hope is to inspire active participation in further environmental improvements.
Small changes repeated on a large scale can have dramatically positive effects.
As well as in locations throughout the UK, his work can be seen in Poland, Norway and New York
