Are you looking for a unique and creative away day for your organisation or team? Wysing’s 11-acre rural grounds provide a beautiful outdoor backdrop for a team building experience day centred around an artist-led creative activity.   

Your away day will be facilitated by Georgina Manning, a studio artist at Wysing. You’ll have a morning in our woodland area exploring outdoor activities such as den building, and an afternoon to explore printmaking inspired by nature. There will be a short team building game at the end of the day and time for you all to reflect on your activities and how you worked together.
