Creative Nature is a collective of artist, makers and designers that believe that we all are inherently creative. It is our job as teachers to nurture and reveal these qualities in every one we teach. We have defined five disciplines that encompass all the skills of our group; to draw, carve, build, weave and cast. You can access these workshops in different studios around south London. Our main location is Creative Nature HQ , East Greenwich, that specializes in wood carving, weaving and construction on a monumental scale.

Teaching was informative and friendly. The venue is well supplied with equipment required and has free on site car parking as well as a cafe with a outdoor terrace with a view of the river.

I had a amazing day at Creative Nature HQ. The teacher/artist, Stephen, was very friendly and has incredible knowledge of wood carving/sculpture and wood working tools. Stephen started by welcoming me and making me a nice cup of tea. I enjoyed my tea as he gave me a tour of the studio/workshop and its facilities. During the walk around he explained and demonstrated what the tools are and how they are used. After this introduction I was shown how to make a mallet out of a solid piece of Ash. This is a very simple and clever process which was really satisfying to do. After lunch I learnt how strip the bark from a large oak tree trunk. I then got involved in some large tree trunk carving (be warned this is highly addictive :-) ). I sculpted by using a variety of specialist carving chisels and of course the mallet I had made earlier. All in all the day was very enjoyable. The studio is spacious and bright and Stephen was extremely friendly, helpful and knowledgable. Highly recommend this class.......Great day. Thank you Stephen.

A fantastic experience for me and my friend. Stephen is a wonderful tutor, of whom is patient, informative and a great laugh. My friend and I had never carved before and were a little nervous. But with the great environment and the people we were working with, it felt very natural. The idea that the sculpture, we were working on, being donated to a local park, made the experience even more fulfilling. Will book another class soon and bring more friends!

I had a fantastic time on this course. I learned so much about woodcarving and working on such a large bit of tree was quite awe inspiring. The other students were a great bunch and the fact that the finished sculpture will be donated to a local site made us all feel very engaged. Working collectively was a good lesson in team support. By the end of the course I felt like I'd really achieved something special.
