Workshops & Events

Whether visiting the area for just a few days or a local to Falls of Shin, please join us for one of our immersive Scottish workshops or events throughout the 2019 spring/summer season.

We’ve put the programme together with the help of some incredible local artisans & creatives. Its designed to really bring the M&W story to life – to start living what we harp on about day to day!

 Scotland is bursting with natural goodness but also creative talent. We hope the events provide an opportunity for you to enjoy the best of both whilst enjoying some fantastic age old traditions that sit sympathetically with modern living.  From Easter wreath floristry by Wild Gorse & Kimchi making by Aye Pickled to Wild Cooking and Whisky in the Woods by ourselves, we really hope to welcome you soon.
