Maker's bio

Situated in a tranquil location on the fringes of the Lake District in north west England, we have been hosting a Quirky range of workshops since 2005. We are now proud to offer over 140 Arts, Craft and Heritage Skills Workshops each year, led by an incredible and talented range of local and national tutors, all experts in their field. We have two teaching studios, the 'Squirrel Barn' and the newly renovated, spacious and airy 'Swallow Barn', the latter of which, at 60m2 was very popular in the months post Covid, allowing 2m distancing, hand washing and two staircases. We have several garden teaching spaces too. Lunch (included) can be taken outside on the Tea Lawn in warmer months and teas/coffee with Aga home-baking is served at your desk. Our days are considered real treats.

Sarah reviewed: Silver Jewellery Workshop - '3 Silver Rings in a Day' - a 'Quirky Workshop' nr Ullswater & the Lake District

"First time at Quirky workshops and making silver rings. Had the best time and looked after by Annie with marvellous home baked goodies and lovely lunch. Melinda was a very patient tutor and helped where you needed it. Highly recommend taking any of the courses here, as it has a fabulous friendly vibe and some very funky chickens and gorgeously handsome Kofi. Xx"
