Brainchild of Diana Hawkins and Suzan Houching, THE WOODLANDERS is a group of semi-professional, professional and amateur artists, woodcarvers and potters, based at Burley, near Ringwood, in Hampshire's spectacular New Forest. The artists are truly 'locals', living either in or around the forest area.

THE WOODLANDERS was originally formed thirty years ago, when seven Forest artists got together to put on an exhibition sharing expenses. Many other local artists have taken part since and this year the group consists of eleven painters, two potters, woodcarvers, turners, and jewellery.

What makes THE WOODLANDERS' exhibitions special is the busy programme of demonstrations by the artists throughout the exhibition period, when they are only too pleased to talk about their work. People flock to THE WOODLANDERS as they know they can relax, have a chat and enjoy the ambience for which the group is renowned over the 'best cup of tea in the village'. In fact many visitors spend all day with them!
