Join us for this amazing opportunity to reclaim your ancestral skills with the guided support of some hugely talented local crafters, makers & artists right here on our farm. Come for a day or stay for three nights – lots of options to immerse yourself
On the Saturday and Sunday we will host several skills and craft workhops. These will be half or full day workshops with expert crafts people. You will learn basic principles and skills, get hands on with the tools and materials and maybe even create your first of many crafted items to take home with you. With limited spaces, pre-book these below to secure your place.
Not just ready to get hands on, don’t worry, call in on the Sunday and you will get the chance to watch demonstrations and learn from a number of crafters, makers and artists. You will also get the chance to chat with them and check out their work as you explore the craft trail around the farm
Make a weekend of it in our comfortable bell tents or pitch up with your own kit and enjoy the craic with us in the evenings around the campfire.
Tickets for the Sunday demonstration day can be purchased in advance to secure your place. A seperate booking is required for each workshop you wish to attend. Follow the links below for day, workshop and accomodation bookings
