Wycombe Museum has many magnificent trees!
Come and join us to find out which trees were used in the chair trade, help us map and measure our trees, capture their beauty in a creative workshop, or spend time forest bathing on our motte.
Our programme for the day will include:
- The launch of our outdoor exhibition panels all about trees! Wycombe District is known for its chairs, made from the local wood of the Chilterns. The information panels highlight five different trees in the grounds and shows how their wood was suited to the different parts of a chair.
- What trees do we have? And how old are they? Help us map all the trees on site, identify them and measure their girth so we can calculate their age. This will be a drop-in event with each group or family having a few trees to work with until we’ve completed the whole site. With support from our gardener.
- Beautiful Trees Inspired by works from our art collection and our beautiful grounds, a local artist will support drop-in craft sessions to capture the beauty of our trees on paper.
- Forest Bathing You will have the chance to spend time among our trees with a self-guided session of forest bathing to help you feel at peace with the world.
This is a free drop-in event. No booking required.
