Workshop Wednesdays

Every Wednesday starting from October 2021 we will run different workshops in the Craft Cabin and in time the Wood workshop. They are be open to the public to sign up to. These will vary hugely from woodwork to flower arranging to sewing to painting. Watch this space.
These workshops will be led by different guest craft tutors and supported by a Maker's Place volunteer. Any profit from these workshops will feed back into the set up and work of The Maker's Place.
Thank you for your support.
