Furrowing for Fungi

Fungi Futures, Rights for Weeds & Friends of Lesnes Abbey and Woods.

Join us for a free workshop and sensory walk in Bexley's ancient woodland with artist and community gardener Mayamana from Fungi Futures and volunteer group, Friends of Lesnes Abbey and Woods, where you'll get to meet and learn from the many fungi who live in the woods, drawing and expressing our thoughts, feelings and responses, as we go.

Moving at a gentle pace, we will tune into our senses and observe what's going on around us, as well as practicing some 'art journalling' together, as a creative method of recording and building our relationships with the natural world.

There will be plenty of room for general plant and fungi chat so please come with whatever thoughts, opinions and questions you have.

This event is Free & everyone is welcome- but booking is essential.

Under-18's should be accompanied by a responsible adult.


The workshop is not fully accessible for people with different mobilities. The terrain is mainly flat, but there will be some stony ground, small inclines, and uneven grasslands. The Woods can also be muddy after rain so please come prepared for being outside with comfortable walking shoes, a waterproof and an extra layer. Please bring folding chairs, walking canes and anything else that you need to feel comfortable in the woods.
