Wild Clay Woodland Gathering - 26-28 July


Wild Clay Woodland Gathering - Clay, Yoga and Meditation

Join us for a weekend of creativity, simplicity and rejuvenation in an off-grid woodland setting. Enjoy ceramics, yoga, meditation and wild camping with delicious seasonal food, all designed to nurture your mind and body. Guided by ceramicists Carla Wright and Lily Arnold you'll learn techniques of how to sculpt with locally sourced clay and then how to fire your pieces in an open wood fire.

Each morning and evening there will be yoga and meditation sessions for all levels of experience taught by Karen Simnett (Yoga By The Sea). Explore mindfulness and meditation techniques to quiet the mind and deepen your connection to the earth.

This back-to-basics woodland gathering is designed for a small group of people, fostering a sense of community and shared learning. Whether you're a seasoned practitioner or a beginner, our weekend offers a supportive and inclusive environment where you can explore, create, and unwind at your own pace.
