Helping Hand - spontaneous and personal making workshops

High relief hand


This is for you if… You’d enjoy company, knowledgeable support and a guiding hand while learning new skills, creating your own projects and developing the confidence to take things further.

This is your chance to do whatever you like: Start from scratch, learn to carve or fit a joint, perfect your whittling, sharpen tools and your wits, craft a towering sculpture or a tiny seat, play with puppets or start work on a painting. Anything goes.

We’re here to help and guide and share the skills we've honed. This time is for you to be inspired.

Come with a plan – say, lets make a stool. Or let things evolve spontaneously, creating something you didn’t expect. Stay for an hour, or longer. Make it a regular thing, it’s up to you.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?

Use of the workshop space, all tools and materials. There are refreshments available too, tea, coffee and something sweet.
