Miniature Treasure Boxes Workshop 10th May 2023

Miniature Treasure Boxes Workshop 

Wednesday 10th May 2023

10am – 12:30pm

at Torpel Manor Field Nature Reserve Cabin, Langley Bush Road, Helpston, Peterborough (nearest postcode PE6 7DU)

Tickets £38 plus booking fee (total £41.88)

Join Kathryn for a gentle, nature-connecting creative morning, with all tools and materials provided! We’ll go for a walk to seek inspiration in nature, then create miniature sculptures using air-drying clay and natural materials.

Following simple instructions, you’ll learn how to create miniature sculptures using air-drying clay. Combining natural treasures and one (or more) of your mini sculptures, you’ll create a truly unique mixed media artwork!  It’ll be a treasure in itself and a lasting memory of a creative morning.


Kathryn will show you a simple method of mono-printing using leaves, which you can use to decorate your box. And if time allows, you’ll also have the option of adapting your treasure box to turn it in to a wall-hanging artwork!

This workshop is suitable for adults who enjoy making small things. No experience with clay or printing necessary. The workshop may suit some over 14 year olds too, if they like gentle slow-paced making and working at a small scale (children need their own ticket and must be accompanied by their adult at all times).

It’ll be a small group, so you’ll get plenty of attention. Price of tickets includes all the materials, though you may bring your own box if you wish (please see note on Eventbrite).

Torpel Manor Nature Reserve is owned by Langdyke Countryside Trust. Kathryn Parsons has been Artist in Residence with Langdyke since 2019. Kathryn loves leading creative gatherings online and in person, and sharing the stories of our local wildlife and heritage. Please note, the ticket fee will go to the artist, to contribute towards running this lovely creative workshop. For more information about Langdyke Countryside Trust and Torpel Manor Field see
