I pleased to be able to offer 1 to 1 classes for most art and craft activities, or to help you in realizing a specific project. Workshops can be tailored for you, your friends and family or groups. They can be as full on or as relaxed as you'd like, with lots of hands on practical which can be combined with walks and talks.

Keep it focused or pick and mix activities as you please.


Workshop options

Spoon Carving -  Use shave horses and simple hand tools to carve spoons, spatulas and butterknives from local green wood.
