Events and courses

We offer a range of traditional rural craft and trade courses between April and November, where you can learn the forgotten skills of the past…

All courses start at 10am and finish at 4pm unless otherwise stated. Please note, a few courses run over more than one day. Where this is the case, information will be included in the course detail, with just the start date shown in the course information at the top of each page.

Lunch is provided on all full-day courses, as well as tea and coffee throughout the day. Please notify us of any dietary requirements when you book.

Many of these courses make ideal presents. Please let us know if you would like the day to be a surprise!
