Edinburgh                              
 

1998 – 2014  

FOUR WINDS is ideally placed to support you
to develop your ideas into working projects
        

Established in 1998 Four Winds  was an environmental education and craft based charity.

The original backbone of the organisation was the utilisation of waste wood arising as a result of the annual City of Edinburgh Dutch Elm Disease Control Programme.

Operating within an idyllic and secluded setting in Inverleith Park Four Winds Inspiration Centre  hosted an annual programme of on-site crafts and herbal classes including wood and stone carving, willow weaving, basket making, leather work, rustic furniture making, and creating  mosaics until the loss of the  site in 2010.

From 2002 – 2009, working in partnership with the City of Edinburgh Council, Forestry Commission Scotland and Scottish Natural Heritage, Four Winds was the host and event organiser of the 2 day, environmental festival Edinburgh Treefest and Woodmarket.

Solely responsible for the concept and ongoing management of the event, Four Winds developed the popular, family focused festival from an exciting idea into a much anticipated highlight on the city’s summer event calendar – with more than 100 stands and attractions and welcoming in the region of 15,000 visitors over the weekend.

Since the loss of the Inverleith Park site at the end of 2010, Four Winds has continued its work – out on location  –  offering consultancy, project development, crafts activity sessions, living willow structures,  wood & stone carving commissions …….

FOUR WINDS is ideally placed to support you

Many thanks to The City of Edinburgh Council for their support!
