As well as this list of diarised activities there are a number of other regular events that you may be interested in:
"What a wonderful day!
I never expected that I would have the opportunity to learn the techniques of this traditional art form, and to be taught by such a skilled tutor and in the beautiful surroundings of Burrswood was a great privilege. We were each able to make a painting of the face of an icon, using egg tempera which we mixed ourselves, building the image up from “dark to light”. I have booked on to the full 5 day course, and really look forward to making ...
We are delighted to announce the arrival of Living in the Eighth Day: The Christian Week and the Paschal Mystery by Burrswood Chaplain Revd Dr Steven Underdown.
Based on work done towards his PhD thesis, Steven presents his view that it is only through this mystery of Jesus’ passion, death and resurrection that human beings find their true fulfillment and maturity. He explores ways in which church communities can establish certain patterns of life and worship –...
Burrswood was recently a part of the green token scheme at Waitrose in Uckfield and have now been awarded a cheque for £310! Thank you to everyone who voted for us! Your support is very much appreciated.
"This was my second stay at Burrswood, and each time I have felt from the moment I was admitted that I was part of a very special place, where all the staff contributed to the healing of mind and body. I cannot thank them enough. The spirit of Dorothy Kerin pervades the whole lovely building and the beautiful gardens, and the view over the surrounding countryside was a joy every sunrise, sunset and moonrise."

Valerie spent the day at Burrswood under the Care for Carer's scheme that is run by the charity 3H Helping Hands for Holidays.
We are delighted to be working with 3H to offer support for carers via a day of rest and relaxation. Together we have devised a programme where carers can enjoy our beautiful setting and make use of the facilities.
Carers are looked after, participate in activities, receive treatments as well as having a delicious lunch and tea. It is a time for them.
We were delighted to cheer on the BBC Children in Need Rickshaw Challenge team through Groombridge on Saturday.
Along with many shops in Crowborough, our charity shop has joined in with a commemorative window.
Michelle, our shop manager, reports a number of interesting donations that she has sold from the shop recently - including a beautiful Victorian games table and a chaise longue. She was especially delighted that the chaise longue was bought by a person with some mobility issues and it was just what she needed.
There are more and more ways to be creative at Burrswood. Have a look at the events that are coming up but here are some recent testimonials:
Feedback from Bespoke Christmas Gift Tags -
"Had a brilliant morning doing Christmas craft at Burrswood - great to step off the treadmill and just be creative in this beautiful place. I really recommend these events and plan to do more of them."
“I really enjoyed the Christmas Gift Tag workshop, I could have stayed for another couple of ho...
We are most grateful to Claire for writing this review:
Kerry Ingham's 'Drawing for Relaxation' sessions at Burrswood have surpassed my expectations and I highly recommend the experience for all abilities.
Kerry, a professional artist and counsellor, warmly welcomed participants with a clear description of how the session was structured and lead us in our own explorations during the day. Any of our plaintive cries of "I'm not very good at drawing/art" were heard and then gently challe...
"We all had a fabulous time, Claire not only showed us how to create our beautiful baskets but we also learned so much about the flowers and plants - it was a really interesting day. We were lucky enough to have gorgeous sunny weather so Claire took us outside to look at the gardens and collect foliage.
We were so well looked after and although we didn't know each other we all had a lovely day together.
I'd recommend this to anyone!"
