We have a team of skilled, experienced, adaptable practitioners, who provide accessible, hands-on craft and rural skills activities.
Our motivation is in community-building and our key is reciprocity;
everyone needs to feel they have something to offer in
order to truly engage.
Our Workshops revolve around skill sharing, exchanging ideas and support between everyone: teachers, learners and our host organisations or venues alike. This is how a thriving community functions.
Where possible, our workshops are available at no cost to our participants and therefore open to all. We work with the often vulnerable in our society: those with accessibility issues, learning needs, people with mental ill-health, the lonely and isolated, boosting well-being and promoting positive interaction, as well as environmental understanding through
recycling skills and traditional crafts.
Everyone deserves a voice and has something to contribute.
Our tutors are also available to run well-being workshops within companies and corporate venues, where we can engage with employees for a relaxed and constructive day, where you learn new skills, and help contribute to
our community-based projects.
