Follow the country lane from Youngs End in North Essex and you’ll reach Slamseys Farm, where the Wheaton family live and farm. Alongside the traditional production of cereal crops such as wheat and barley, we’ve planted Christmas trees that are sold to the public in December, developed a range of fruit gins using flowers and berries picked on the farm and run printmaking workshops for creative people who want to expand their skills.
ABOUT SLAMSEYS JOURNAL
You can read here about some of the things that happen on the farm, discover hidden corners of the fields and celebrate the seasons. There are posts that we hope will inspire your creative journey, whether you’re a printmaker, artist, crafter or pins and needles type person. We also have plenty of tips and techniques for anyone new to printmaking, because we enjoy printmaking so much, we’d like everyone to have a go.
