Make a needle-felt Herdwick doorstop, 2 wise Owls or a gorgeous Bunny at Greystoke Craft Garden & Barns

Annie's courses are always brilliant in this wonderful venue, and this is no exception. Annis is patient and helpful, providing all the materials for a very reasonable price, and her precise instructions and use of 'stage' examples in the process of building the sheep are excellent for novices and more experienced needle-felters alike.
I would recommend this course and venue without hesitation, and plan to be doing more to build up my menagerie of needlefelt animals!

Make a needle-felt Herdwick doorstop, 2 wise Owls or a gorgeous Bunny at Greystoke Craft Garden & Barns

Yet another great day out at Quirky workshops!
Annie is a wonderful and welcoming host, nothing is too much trouble for her. The home cooked lunch was delicious, this time served in the very welcoming kitchen.
What a patient lady and tutor Annis is. I broke so many needles! My Herdwick doorstop is fabulous and now has pride of place.
I would not hesitate to recommend this course.

Thoroughly enjoyable day in a lovely venue with great company, and food.
Annis was an excellent tutor, and we all went home happy with our herdy doorstop under our arm, I look forward to returning!

Letter carving in stone ...(& relief) a 3 day workshop with Pip Hall ~ a 'Quirky Workshop' at Greystoke Craft Garden & Barns north Lakes & Cumbria

A brilliant introduction to what will become a new hobby! The wide variety of stones brought along by Pip allowed an equally broad range of ideas to be realised. Pip's skill ensured that while the designs remained 'ours' the ideas both matched the style of lettering and the shape of the stone. Three days were gone in a blink of an eyelid. Many many thanks

Letter carving in stone ...(& relief) a 3 day workshop with Pip Hall ~ a 'Quirky Workshop' at Greystoke Craft Garden & Barns north Lakes & Cumbria

It was my first time attending a course and I found everything first rate. The whole place has a wonderful atmosphere and everything is organised to enable participants get as much as possible from the course. I got a lot out of attempting to carve letters on a piece of sandstone from the garden. Thank you Annie and Pip.

Traditional English longbow making course - a 2-day 'Quirky Workshop' at Greystoke Craft Garden & Barns near Penrith and Ullswater

Had a fabulous two days and came away with a proven working longbow! Tony is an excellent tutor, very knowledgeable and offering practical skills where required.
The venue is just perfect and even the second days rain didn't dampen anyone's enthusiasm. The group were great and gelled really well, so if you're looking for something different this workshop comes highly recommended.
Many thanks to all concerned
