Spinning, weaving and dyeing - Monthly on a Saturday
As a novice in the crafts, my knowledge base has expanded enormously by attending Alison's class. I started as a weaver but Alison managed to get me spinning - first on a drop spindle and then on the wheel. I'm so glad she took me patiently through those early stages - I know I'm a better spinner now because of...

Firebird Forge Blacksmithing School
What a fun day, hitting things with big hammers and playing with fire, it dosen't get much better. Expert tuition from Mort (he has the patience of a saint), and I made something useful that the wife loves. Thanks again for a great day

Introduction to green wood furniture making - two days
Just spent two excellent days with Peter Lanyon, learning how to make a stool out of green wood. I would recommend this to anyone from complete beginners to those who have lots of experience.

Pembrokeshire Maddie Janes Mosaic
We spent a lovely chilled morning with Maddie in her lovely rural workshop. We both made mirror frames as part of the 'creative' workshop and were really happy with the results. Maddie has a very relaxed approach to running her workshops which was just perfect for us - she was very helpful when we needed her, but also just let...

Timber framing courses
Without a doubt this is the best course I have been on in my life! I was a bit intimidated by the idea of attending a course I knew nothing about, and a bit worried about being a female in a male dominated field of interest, but I had nothing to fear. Alan and his crew, and his adorable family,...

Basic blacksmiths courses
Great introduction to being a blacksmith. Ross was a passionate (and patient!) teacher. Really hands on day coming away with things I made that I will actually use. Awesome lunch, fantastic cake and coffee and great company. Looking to sign up for some more courses.
