"This was such a fantastic experience, creating something I could never have learned on my own. Jess is a wonderful teacher, so patient and so inspiring."


"Straight away as soon as we turned up there was a great vibe. Jess is FANTASTIC. Super lovely, super friendly and put everyone at ease making us feel confident to be able to create something cool."


"Had an amazing day with Jess learning how to use the tools and create a lovely tray. Really proud of the finished product because I never thought I’d be able to make something so lovely."


Private Workshops

Get a group of up to 6 friends or colleagues together and come and enjoy a day of learning and laughter.

Bring a group of  up to 6 ladies for a fun day out. 

A birthday celebration, hen party, business away-day or just a chance to spend some time with friends.

The day starts at 10am with coffee/tea and home-made bakes, we will learn the basics of woodwork measuring and cutting and make a start on the project you have chosen for the day.

We will stop for a delicious lunch made with local ingredients and maybe even veg from the garden in the summer!  


The afternoon session continues as we assemble our projects and start to see them take shape.

When the creations are finished there is cake and prosecco to celebrate everyone's achievements.  The day will finish around 5pm.

Birthday/ celebration cakes can be provided for special occasions.  Non-alcoholic fizz will also be available for drivers.

Private workshops can be booked for weekend days by prior arrangement.
