Service Description

Unique, but originating from the same tree.....I'm talking about Downy oak leaves - but they are just like you and me - individual! Would you enjoy creating your family tree, or starting a project that can be added to over the years, with an original historic connection? Using organic choices from a majestic oak will inspire and shape your creation to become a meaningful treasure for your family. In the grounds of Charles Darwin's childhood home, we are lucky to have a unique and rare specimen of Downy Oak (Quercus pubescens) - the UK champion - and probably planted by Darwin's parents (indicated by the trunk circumference of 5.2 meters as it only grows a cm a year), so the tree and Charles grew up together! The tree is still here, very special in its beautiful self, and symbolic of the enduring legacy this great man left us. Feretia's workshop involves using bronze and silver clay. It is very accessible with every support offered by an accredited guide, to demonstrate, offer ideas and facilitate the skills you will learn and use, encouraging your creative imagination. You will be able to make several unique leaves/pieces with different characteristics - and your family tree will evolve! Refreshments will be provided, but please bring your own lunch. If a group together is booked, lunch options can be arranged and booked separately. Feretia provides all project resources and tools for use on the weekend, all further details will be provided on booking. Please get in touch if you would prefer an alternative day or date and we will do our best to accommodate you. ​
