Woodland craft courses

We have been running courses in our woodland workshop for over 25 years.  The course centre is set in a beautiful 90 acre wood in the National Forest on the Leicestershire/Derbyshire border.

During 2021 we will be running over 60 craft courses, taught by some of the country’s leading makers. Our tutors are all highly skilled professional craft workers and teachers who share our passion for preserving, promoting and passing on these crafts and techniques.

We are continuing to run courses with the same safety measures we have had in place since the beginning of the pandemic. The courses are held outside (under cover) with lots of space to distance. Where possible we’ll provide you with your own set of tools and if not they will be wiped down between use

If you have any concerns about our protocols please do get in contact.

Come and enjoy the beauty of the woodland, be inspired, be creative, learn a new craft.

If there’s a course you’d like to attend but it’s fully booked please e-mail and we’ll add you to a waiting list. We do have cancellations and will contact you if a space becomes available.

If you’re interested in a course for next year please subscribe to our newsletter. Course dates for 2022 will be pre-released to newsletter subscribers in October and due to popularity many dates book up before they reach the website!
