Every Thursday During Term Time - The Thursday Group

Once a week, on a Thursday morning from 10am to 1pm, we meet in a field, by a stream or in a dusty workshop, to enjoy the discovery together of a new technique or maybe revisit an old one, but approach it with a new light. We welcome newcomers, who need no previous experience or knowledge. All equipment is supplied. If you are interested in joining us, please contact Lucy Williams, telephone number 01892 724375 or email wildatart@gmx.co.uk


Every 3rd Friday of the Month - Wild Watch and Walk

Walk through the grounds of Marle Place and hear, see and smell some of the wild creatures who live here. Enjoy a glass of our own apple juice or a cup of tea before we set off at dusk.

Every Saturday - Budding Artists

Saturday mornings of making for children, a chance for them to discover natures secrets, twist twigs, squelch clay, whittle sticks, collect feathers and scribble with their own made charcoal.

Whenever possible we will work outside and in. Please ring me, Lucy Williams, for information on the weather and if a session is running or not, 01892 724375 / 07904 334124

Bespoke Woodwork

Lucy Williams is a talented woodworker and her garden furniture raises the humble bench to new heights with original, often whimsical carvings, and bright harmonious colours. Lucy's furniture has gained a reputation in its own right and provides her with that most enviable of things - a hobby profitable enough to be a career.

Enchanting furniture with a heart. Heartwood company brings larger than life enchantment and a touch of magic to gardens large and small.


“Art that works” is the ethos behind Heartwood’s natural garden sculptures and furniture, which are individually commissioned and tailored. Made principally from wood all of which is either reclaimed or from a renewable source.

As well as the unconventional pieces of furniture we also have received many commissions for the more formal, including refectory tables, benches, bed heads and cabinets. Larger commissions have included Tree Houses, Bridges and Totem Poles.


 We are happy to fulfill any project and work closely with our clients to ensure we meet all of your specifications.

You are welcome to visit the workshop by prior arrangement at Marle Place, where a selection of our work is on display around the beautiful gardens.



Lucy's woodworking barn is situated within the grounds as is Lindel's studio and the art gallery.
