Have fun whilst learning
Workshops and Events
Keen to run with the ethos behind the village table initiative we are going to run events and workshops that build on traditions and artisans crafts. In light of the fact we are in a protected nature park we also want to bring a closer connection to nature. We hope to introduce foraging walks, outdoor cooking classrooms, apiary visits, winemaking classes as well as activity days celebrating the nature around us such as photography and painting. We’ve also had interest expressed for language exchange weekends.
We will work local artisans to offer workshops and events to ‘pass on’ their knowledge to visitors & guests, learnt before before modern agricultural methods meant that skills and traditions, once a part of daily life disappear.
We have invited host speakers to come and enthrall you with their tales, knowledge and insight about a range of subjects from bugs and insects to setting up a new life in Hungary. We will host scavenger hunts and folklore nights to educate and have fun!
Artisan Crafts & Skills
We will bring your workshops from hurdle-making, whittling, jam making to bread-making and soap making hosted by people willing to share their talent.
