Our occasional craft workshops here at Broadrake continue to prove very popular. We have run Blacksmithing and Willow Weaving courses for a few years now and they fill up quickly so book early. John Harrison's line and wash painting workshops ran for the first time this year and were very well received. In addition the Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust organised a couple of scything courses here in the summer with tutor Steve Tomlin.
We are putting together the workshops programme for 2018 now so get in touch if you are interested. There are dates below for Blacksmithing and Willow Weaving. We may host some other courses organised by YDMT and there is an introductory Astronomy evening in November to take advantage of the area's dark skies. Hopefully there will be more stargazing evenings over the winter. Details will be added below as soon as dates are confirmed.
Or why not consider Broadrake as a venue and organise your own workshop here. It could be residential, or just daytime use. The Bunkbarn can sleep up to 20 and has good kitchen facilities for catering. The open plan upstairs space is suitable for meetings and activities such as knitting, painting, music etc. If you have any ideas or want to visit to see if the barn is suitable please get in touch.
