Sitting Hares - Willow Sculptures with Juliette Hamilton
We're collaborating with the wonderfully talented Juliette Hamilton! Come and join us in our lovely rustic barn setting and learn about the creative art of willow sculpture - making a lovely large lounging hare to sit in your home or garden.
We'll make sure you're well looked after on this fabulous day-long session - and thoroughly topped up with Random Apple juice of course! You have a choice of bringing your own lunch - but why do that when you could be treated to a scrumptious locally sourced artisan ploughman's-style buffet feast?! A fantastic day out to learn a new skill and get creating a masterpiece - or a brilliant gift for a loved one
Cost £57 without lunch, £67 with lunch provided (please let us know of any dietary requirements on booking).

Follow us on Facebook and Twitter for up-to-the-minute information. Occasionally we run some really 'random' events . . . !
Orchard Festival (July 2018)
A celebration of epic proportions in the orchard: family picnics, plenty of apple juice, music by Undercover Live, The Bollington Ice Cream Company, croquet . . . and bubbles everywhere!
The Random Wassail (January 2016)
A private event in our own orchard for friends of The Random Apple Company who donated their apples during the previous season or helped us with pressing.
The custom of wassailing dates back to pagan times to drive out evil spirits from the apple trees and 'bless' them for the forthcoming year's harvest. Now a much revived and widely recognised event, mainly in the orchards of the south of England, we gave celebrations our own 'random' twist with local morris dancers, folk singers, an atmospheric ceremony led by the 'Orchard King', a bonfire, family picnic spread . . . and of course plenty of hot mulled apple juice!
"What an authentic atmosphere! I felt like I was part of a secret apple worshipping cult - I'm now ready to pledge my allegiance to the King of the Orchard!"
