About Broadrake

We have been hosting workshops for over 5 years using experienced tutors with excellent teaching skills. We focus more on heritage & greenwood workshops, to ensure that traditional skills are not lost. Working hands-on is great for mental-well being & taking home hand-crafted items is very rewarding.
We are in a stunning setting in the Yorkshire Dales with amazing views of Ribblehead Viaduct, using an upstairs open plan venue in a converted barn also used as quality bunkbarn accommodation.
