Our prices reflect our standards.
We select our tutors based on their skill, talent and passion to share their knowledge. Only the best will do.
Each tutor is interviewed and demonstrates their work to us. They must have the confidence and skill to teach their craft. Teaching a craft is very different from making and showing someone. They have to demonstrate and guide a group of people to get the best from them, that in itself is a skill.
As many workshops we run have a health and safety aspect to them, our tutors have to ensure they instruct clients correctly on how to use the tools to avoid injuries, safety is paramount. All tools and materials will have been tried and tested by the tutors to ensure they are the right quality and standard for customer to use.
To finish off the tutors we select have to be exception communicators, demonstrate patience and inspire. Not everyone can teach but our tutors can.
The converted barn offers tranquillity, an airy and warm space with fantastic views from the 3 large windows overlooking the lush green rolling countryside. The uninterrupted open views offer inspiration and provide space for thoughts and memory making. The tops of the vines can be seen from the window beckoning you to take a closer look after lunch.
A world away from the busy streets and built up areas, here you are surrounded by nothing but calm.
