Great couple of days. Thanks to Tony's guidance started with ash tree section and came away with a long bow. Venue and food supplied by Annie also brilliant.
Highly recommend.

Willow sheep, hares, angels, hens & cockerels with Phil Bradley: a 'Quirky Workshop' at Greystoke Craft Garden & Barns near Penrith and Ullswater

As three art teachers, we had a wonderful and very informative day out on the willow course. Phil and all the Cycle cafe staff were lovely and it was a real pleasure to take part - not to mention our superb, quirky willow hares we made! Would thoroughly recommend!

Willow sheep, hares, angels, hens & cockerels with Phil Bradley: a 'Quirky Workshop' at Greystoke Craft Garden & Barns near Penrith and Ullswater

An excellent day out. Beautiful setting, clear instructions & help. People can't quite believe that I made Harris, my willow hare.

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

An excellent introduction to skills in making an oven. The emphasis on touching and feeling the material means that even though you may wait until the spring to start it is more than just x sand to y clay but a real feel for what is required

Stone Carving (relief & 3D) sculpture for Beginners/Ints. - 3D- with Simon Keeley: a 'Quirky Workshop' at Greystoke Craft Garden & Barns near Penrith and Ullswater

Amazing what you can achieve in a day with a good tutor and convivial surroundings. Completely from scratch, we managed to make a block pattern, print and make up a lampshade, and have some printed material to play with at home too. Brilliant day to get absorbed into a new craft and not have to worry about anything else. Thanks Georgia & Annie : )

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

Brilliant. Greystoke Cafe is a beautiful venue, the sun shone both days (which I guess doesn't happen every time) and Annie and her team kept us supplied with lovely food and drink.
Tony is a great teacher - explains everything clearly, let's you get on with it and steps in quietly when the grain gets the better of you. I enjoyed it very much.

Super venue and hostess keeping us topped up with food and drinks. The scheduled end time had to be extended on both days perhaps because the lovely warm days were not ideal conditions for manual labour, but great for sitting around admiring the view and enjoying a cuppa! Tony ensured everyone left with a working longbow (even in the event of a catastrophic failure) and stepping in to help in the event of any problems.

As a venue, Greystoke cafe is excellent for courses and workshops. Annie is a wonderful host and the food is delicious. Lovely surroundings and a relaxed ambience. Highly recommended for a stop off on your travels or a range of activities.
