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

What can I say but fantastic..... My son and I attended the course run by Tony and we had a great time. Tony has a great depth of knowledge and supports students throughout. The venue was brilliant, great food and great people. Both my son and I are motivated to take these new found skills forward..... Thank you Tony for a great experience.

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) a 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.

Casting in pewter - making jewellery, decorations & keyrings: a 'Quirky Workshop' at Greystoke Craft Garden & Barns near Penrith and Ullswater

Ella is a great teacher, straightforward, enthusiastic and lively. We all got stuck in straight away and surprised ourselves with what and how much we made in a day. There was designing and sawing and soldering and carving and molten pewter all going on at the same time and the atmosphere was friendly and creative. I hope to come back to make more in pewter again soon.

Casting in pewter - making jewellery, decorations & keyrings: a 'Quirky Workshop' at Greystoke Craft Garden & Barns near Penrith and Ullswater

Ella was fabulous - we got going really quickly - as Ella gave really concise teaching points to get us underway guiding us and rescuing the minor mishaps with our work. We produced an array of little objects using variety of techniques which were really pleasing. It was an immensely pleasurable day topped off with a really yummy lunch, plenty of nibbles, drinks and some lovely company. Thank you! We are already looking forward to our next visit.

'Applique & stitch' discovering machine embroidery: a 'Quirky Workshop' at Greystoke Craft Garden & Barns near Penrith and Ullswater

Dear Sarah and Annie,
Just to say how much I enjoyed the embroidery course last Saturday. It was great to spend a day with so many lovely ladies and so many sewing machines!
I’ve finished my picture and made a couple of lavender bags using the same techniques. I’m sure I will be doing lots more.
