When you arrive
Please note, the main car park for Kings Wood at White Hill, Challock TN25 4DG, is marked by a brown "Stour Valley Arts" sign. Head to the right hand side of the car park when you arrive, where your artist leader will meet you to guide you into the forest. Guests should be comfortable spending a few hours in an outdoor, woodland environment where weather may be changeable and will vary depending on the time of year. Although basic shelter and seating will be provided, comfortable clothing and sun/ rain protection is important. The Experience will last approximately 3 hours, starting late morning with a stroll through the forest, then stopping at base camp for lunch and the creative activity.
Locally sourced picnic lunch provided by The Barn Shop, Challock or Wasted Kitchen in Faversham, including sweet and savoury options, hot and cold drinks. Your artist leader will provide all creative equipment needed for the activity. Guests are encouraged to bring along any specific personal items they might wish to use such as a camera or sketchbook.
