Our programme of courses and craft workshops here at Broadrake is very popular. Many of the tutors have been coming here for years and we have had excellent feedback from students -
Spoon Carving - "Just finished the two-day October 2018 course with Steve. On the train home as I write and already I want to come back."
Basket Making - "Wow! I've met some really interesting, lovely people and learned so much about basket weaving in the stunning setting of Broadrake Barn."
Our 2022 programme is shown below. Please get in touch if you would like to book or if you have any questions. If you are travelling any distance and would like accommodation you could always stay here in the bunkbarn. It's very comfortable with excellent facilities. There is a good kitchen if you want to cater for yourself, or eat out at one of the local pubs.
Our Craft Workshops make great Christmas gifts. We can offer vouchers for specific courses if you know what you want, or buy a voucher to spend on any of the courses we run ourselves. (Excludes courses booked direct with the tutor ie. scything & peening.)
Then you could also consider Broadrake as a venue for your own special interest group. The barn is available for residential or daytime use and can sleep up to 20 with excellent kitchen facilities for catering. The open plan upstairs space is suitable for meetings and activities such as art groups, music, yoga etc. If you have any ideas you want to discuss or would like to visit to see if the barn is suitable please get in touch.
