Walk and create in the Sussex Downs

A day based from Jacky’s studio where you will explore Glynde and surrounding countryside before heading back to get creative…

Over the last 3 years Jacky has been combining her artistic practice with a love of walking and nature. This has resulted in a series of group walks developed where participants enjoy the local countryside and then feed this experience into creating a piece of unique artwork. This typically takes the form of a found sculpture, stream of consciousness writing or a drawing.


Brief overview

We start with tea and cake at the studio where we have a brief introduction to the day and each other. There is a maximum of 8 people per group.  We then have a choice of walks which we will decide on between us. These include a gentle stroll through the back paths of the village, a walk up to Mount Caburn and back, or to the beanstalk cafe and on to Charleston House (home of the Bloomsbury group).


Lunch will either be at our local tea shop in Glynde or the beanstalk cafe in nearby Firle. Both offer a choice of cream tea or other tasty lunch.  We will then walk back to the studio or the local reading room where we will begin creating our masterpieces. 


No experience is necessary and materials will be provided but do feel free to bring your own creative tools if you so wish. We will end the day looking at each other’s work over more tea and cake.

More info…

Glynde has it’s own train station (with a direct link to Brighton, London Bridge and Victoria) so you can start your day with a 10 minute walk through the village to the studio at Glynde Gardens, or you can drive and park for free in the village car park by the cricket pitch nearby.  

There is a maximum of 8 people per group. Children over the age of 10 are welcome and must be accompanied by a full paying adult.

Price is £35 per adult, £15 per child which includes tea, cake and all materials.
