Green woodcrafts and living in harmony with nature.
A one week activity holiday to inspire and relax you, May
in southern France, cost £420
A unique opportunity to learn green woodwork skills and deepen your connection with nature. Create beautiful and practical objects, forage for wild food plants, make charcoal, build and cook with outdoor fires and ovens. Reenergise, unwind and nourish your creativity, letting the earth stimulate and sustain you within a beautiful setting.
Os Figueiros, ‘the house of figs’ is an historic bastide farmhouse. An exceptional venue with its old world charm; an enchanting interior courtyard and balcony, large gardens and orchard. You will feel sheltered and far away from the stresses and strains of modern day living.
Under the expert tuition and support of Phil Harwin you will be shown the techniques to work safely using a variety of traditional hand tools making spoons, knives and forks, carve cups and bowls and make simple stools or learn how to sculpture a beautiful and practical walking stick.
“ I spent a wonderful week at Os Figueiros, in which just like each plant there we were fed, watered and nurtured, and were rendered stronger and happier when we returned home. It’s the perfect place to reclaim any lost energy, meet kindred spirits and learn an abundance of new things.”
