Art in the Park

Here in the Wild Oak Woods we can run a number of activities which we group together under the heading of Art in the Park. These include;



  • Finding the ten most beautiful or interesting things that you can get in a Bug Box (excluding creepy crawlies) and making them in to a picture to take home.
  • Making giant themed sculptures , for example of creatures that live in the woods, out of natural materials.
  • Making things that hang from trees using natural materials and making willow stars and filling them with beautiful natural objects encased in opaque art paper to take home.

Elspeth will provide all the materials and equipment that you art2
require and the woodland will provide inspiration and beautiful natural objects. Art in the park activities can be tailored to work for groups of any age and ability and absolutely no artistic ability is required, mother nature will make an artistic genius of you.

If your family or group would like to try any of the 'Families in the Woods' activities please call Elspeth on 07747042197 for further details and to discuss what activities would suit you best.

Families in the woods activities are a great way to get in touch with the environment and get to know the area when you are on holiday and are ideal for birthday parties for outdoorsy kids.

Activities generally take place between 2.00pm and 4.00pm any day of the week though other times may be possible by prior arrangement. Family tickets admitting two adults and two children to the two hour group activities cost £20. Other groups can easily be accommodated and are charged depending on the size of the group. Booking is essential for all Families in the Woods activities.

For all activities in the woods please come wearing clothes you don't mind getting a bit mucky, trousers are best as they will protect you from any nettles you may encounter, and strong shoes or boots.

Areas used for group work are monitored on a regular basis and all activities are risk assessed by the experienced staff at Wild Oak Woods.
