Art, crafts & the environment at Milden Hall

Exploring the natural world through art

We can arrange tutors for whole days on art and craft themes but usually art and craft activities are woven into other themed days doing the following for example:

  • Observation drawing and painting eg moths caught overnight
  • Flower/leaf-pressing & collage
  • Making garlands
  • Simple cone-basket making (with a brought in tutor)
  • Building bird nests
  • Hedgehog hibernation homes
  • Hazel whittling
  • Dying with natural dyes, spinning & felt-making
  • Art-in-nature creations and installations (Goldsworthy style)
  • Nature’s palette
  • Lantern-making
  • Meadow in a matchbox
  • Story sticks
