Our Classes and Workshops
We run public courses throughout the year at the nursery including willow weaving with Leilah Vyner, wreath making with Gillian Tomlinson and wood carving with Allen Stichler and will be newly introducing loom weaving and more throughout the autumn months.
Our classes are either held in our central Oasis building or in one of our working greenhouses. The course durations vary from one day classes to two day weekend courses. Please subscribe to the newsletter to see what is available or visit our What's On page to book.
We wish to best utilise our wonderful outdoor, peaceful environment to offer wellness activities and will also use the Oasis which has the benefit of Woolly Sheep sound clouds to help soften the acoustics.
As everyone has been having trouble with booking on to our classes and workshops on BookWhen, I have made a tutorial for you all to watch to hopefully help you with your BookWhen troubles. If you are still having troubles, please email or phone Jessica.

Allen Stichler - Woodcarver
My name’s Allen Stichler and I’m a wood carver and tree sculptor from North Lincolnshire; using the same traditional methods (mallet and chisel) that have been used by craftsmen for centuries, all my work is commissioned and each piece is unique. For around ten years I have had the privilege of holding carving workshops at Mires Beck, with both the public and the Nursery’s trainees; the serene and tranquil environment is the perfect setting for working with a natural, organic material like wood, and this calming atmosphere spreads to the participants on the course ~ making it a wholly enjoyable and rewarding experience for all. I hope to continue my relationship with Mires Beck for many years to come!
