Traditional English Longbow making course - 2 day a '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

Cob Clay Pizza oven building with David Alty: a 'Quirky Workshop' at Greystoke Craft Garden & Barns near Penrith and Ullswater

I just wanted to drop you a line to say how much I enjoyed yesterday's oven course with David. It didn't matter that the weather was less than perfect; it was good fun and no one seemed to mind. There was a lot of enthusiasm amongst the course group and we all had a good laugh as well as learning something. Thank you to you both for providing the fab food throughout the day. Keep up the good work!

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

Thanks Pip and Annie from us both for such an inspiring course in stone letter carving. Your teaching was excellent - we're so pleased with our pieces and what a great group and perfect setting; the food was a real treat too. After my house name I feel inspired to carry on and have a go at something else, maybe like the relief carving that Dave did. I might try that - if I manage to I will send you a photo!
With thanks again, Cath.

Introduction to silver clay jewellery with Jo Dix: a 'Quirky Workshop' at Greystoke Craft Garden & Barns near Penrith and Ullswater

I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the Silver Clay day on 8th June. Jo the tutor was excellent, offering the right amount of guidance and help throughout the day and I'm thrilled with the pendant I made.
Also the food was brilliant and a wonderful addition to a great day.
I would certainly recommend you to others and will look out for the new dates for maybe more silver clay....maybe a class for those who have already done one, or for the silver jewellery course.
Thanking you

Cob Clay Pizza oven building with David Alty: a 'Quirky Workshop' at Greystoke Craft Garden & Barns near Penrith and Ullswater

This was just a one day course, very busy and hands on, a really fun day with Dave and 5 others learning how to tread the cob, make the 'loaves' and create a full size pizza oven between us. Fab food, great fun and the afternoon topped off with cooking fresh pizzas in another oven alongside the one we'd built.
Would highly recommend.
