Great tutors offer you a range of
traditional crafts and countryside skills workshops.
Sharing their wealth of skills and experience with you.
Traditional skills - making and doing something- HANDS ON. All the different disciplines are highlighted on our Workshops page.
We have compiled a broad and interesting range of workshops to suit the absolute beginner to the more practised.
We hope to offer something for everyone and our tutors have been chosen not just for their professional expertise but also for their teaching ability.
The weekend events have a menu of options for workshops with a flexible itinerary. Pick two days of different disciplines and mix and match or stay with the same tutor for a more in-depth experience. Or just attend one of the days if you can't commit to the whole weekend event. Remember, its more than just learning we are providing a programme of evening talks, demonstrations and entertainment for each event.
In 2014 we are running three weekend events,
two in Armagh and one in Portaferry.
