About the Course

Spend a lovely week enjoying the food, accommodation, surroundings and the company of others whilst learning and practicing a range of art and craft skills on offer at Flatford Mill.

There will be felting with Toni Peers, Carole Gray will be visiting for the day to give students the opportunity to turn their hand to stained glass techniques and Deb Hart will be on hand during the week providing guidance on willow weaving. Evenings will be very informal after dinner, with opportunities to see what our bookbinding and art students are getting up to and perhaps finish off projects from that day.
