Hello Everyone

You know what I'm going to say ...

Treetops are cancelling forthcoming classes until it's safe for us to run them again.

We will miss you all!

The tutors and I will be running the classes again as soon as we are able to, so you can keep your booking as it is, or I can arrange a refund for you.  I have sent those of you who are booked in an email this morning.

Stay safe everyone
Love Emily

Aga One Pots with Sarah Whitaker

Sarah was back with us this week for a Warming Winter One Pot array of recipes.

Delicious recipes such as a casserole, fish pie, thai stir fry, thai soup, mushroom risotto, cauli & onion, puddings and more!

Whilst cooking, Sarah is taking us through how to use the Aga, whether it's baking, roasting, grilling, simmering and showing us how to maintain heat, juggle ovens and the classic "pop it in the simmering oven and walk away' style of Aga cooking!

A couple of today's delicious recipes were the onion and cauliflower with pine nuts and raisins above along with the banana tarte tartin, being sprinkled with icing sugar "to show you've made and effort". 😉

Always useful is Sarah's brilliant travelling shop, really useful kitchen and Aga bits and pieces along with Sarah's great recipe books.

Sacral Chakra AromaYoga Workshop

Thank you to Rachel and everyone who joined us last night for our AromaYoga Workshop.

This month it was focussed on the Sacral Chakra

Rachel led a gentle meditation and yin yoga session whilst we listened to music specifically designed to activate and heal imbalances in the second chakra, which is responsible for emotions and creativity. 

It is very beneficial to connect with water, and some of the pieces sounded lovely with waterfalls and waves.

The Sacral Chakra is represented by the colour orange, a happy positive colour.

I chose orange foods for our nibbles at the end of our practice; peaches, sweet potato, butternut squash and oranges.

The lovely oils Rachel used for the evening were; bergamot, marjoram, citrus bliss and lavender.

In the room diffuser we enjoyed wild orange and lavender.

Boats, Reflections and Mists Watercolour

Yesterday our group painted a lovely scene from Plockton in Scotland.

It was an opportunity to learn many techniques

After the drawing and masking, it was time for a first light wash

As the day progressed the layers and detail were intensified

They are really beautiful

Lunch was delicious Salmon, pea mash and slow roasted basil tomatoes.

We have a couple of spaces left on our Poppies Watercolour day on
